A tree I hadn't considered before... but I was looking for one that would flower mid-summer. Bloom period is listed as late June through end of July but one blog said theirs was in full bloom in first week of August.
Area under consideration is the front yard -- packed clay subsoil but well draining if I plant high on a mound. I can choose between area that stays dry in winter or area that stays wet/frozen through winter and becomes soppy soggy early spring. Full sun.
What do you think?
