x Gordlinia

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'–30' high x 10'–15' wide. Zone 6/7.

x Gordlinia grandiflora (T-0289)

Dainty blooms and unfurling leaves forge an early spring treasure trove of color and texture.

In the last ten days, we’ve experienced all kinds of weather at Digging Dog, including frosty mornings, torrential downpours, deafening hail, glorious sunny 70 º afternoons and even sleet! Thankfully spring is almost here and signs of its arrival grow more evident every day. Brimming with possibility, youthful growth and pristine delicacy, the early spring garden is a fresh treasure trove of color and texture. The plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye while walking through the nursery and along the surrounding borders. Hopefully, a handful of them will spark your interest as well! All of us here at the nursery wish you a very happy spring and countless happy afternoons digging in a garden!
