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.

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

Customer Comment:

“I don't know how you folks do it, but the plants were in immaculate condition, cool and slightly damp upon arrival without a leaf out of place!  ...Digging Dog deserves high praise for being able to accomplish such a feat from one sizzling hot coast to another.”
