x Gordlinia grandiflora full sun  partial shade

The irresistible brainchild of NCSU professor Dr. Thomas Ranney, this rare intergeneric cross inherits each of its parents’ finest traits: the hardiness of Franklinia plus Gordonia’s cultural ease. The small attractively shaped visage premiers large 3 to 4 in. wide, slightly cupped white flowers amidst neat reflective linear green leaves that later spark orange and red colors in autumn. From mid-summer through early fall, exquisite yellow-centered Camellia-like blossoms waft a sweet delicate scent, entrancing butterflies and garden visitors alike. Undaunted by heat and humidity, vigorous Mountain Gordlinia makes a top-notch evergreen specimen in well-drained evenly moist sites with full sun and some light afternoon shade.

Blooms July-September

Size: 20' 0"–30' 0" high x 10' 0"–15' 0" wide. Zone 6/7.

Customer Comment:

“I just visited Digging Dog Nursery over the weekend, and was very impressed, both by their plants and their beautifully landscaped surroundings. They have a wide range of plants (many which you don't see elsewhere) and everything was healthy, vigorous and picture perfect. The word which comes to mind is "cherished." I bought a few of these beauties and they are blooming already!”
