Evodia daniellii

Korean Evodia

Plant Type:


Evodia daniellii – The Korean Evodia displays 4 to 6 inch slightly domed corymbs in late spring composed of multitudes of white florets. The flowers are broad, showy and a great bee attractant emerging from the season's new growth. Seed capsules are red in August and, as with the flowers, showy. Gradually they turn black and can last through November. The capsules on the way to the color metamorphose split open to reveal glossy black to brownish black seeds. This is a fast growing (in youth) medium to medium large tree cloaked in compound pinnate leaves. There is usually no fall color to speak of though in some autumns the leaves will turn yellow-green. Bark is medium to light gray, smooth with lenticels and increasingly attractive. As with so many trees with notable bark interest the bark becomes better and better as the plant grows older. The bark is light enough in color to reflect winter light well. The bark on older trees is not unlike European Beech.
