Oxydendrum arboreum

Genus: Oxydendrum.

Species: Oxydendrum arboreum.

The combination of flowers and fall foliage on this plant is incredible. Related to rhododendron, stems are pink when young. Nice shape, small tree. Sourwood honey has an excellent flavor but is about impossible to find outside of the southern US.
