The Mountain Gordlinia is a very rare hybrid between two unique trees of the South, one of which – Franklin’s tree – is extinct in the wild. It forms a small pyramidal tree or multi-stem shrub, with large glossy green leaves that are semi-evergreen, with older leaves coloring in the fall. Through the summer it produces 5-inch blooms that are like large white camellias – which this tree is related to. It is ideal for woodland edges and lawn specimens in warmer parts of the country, and a very special collector’s plant of great beauty.

  • Striking semi-evergreen tree with large leaves
  • Big white flowers in summer, like camellias
  • Red and orange fall colors on older leaves
  • Very rare hybrid between two unique species
  • Requires moist, acidic soil

Partial shade, with some morning sun, is best for the Mountain Gordlinia, which grows in moist, rich, acidic soils with good drainage. The pH value of the soil should be below 6.0. Although needing some attention, especially when young, it is easier to grow than either of its parents. It could also be grown for years in a large tub or planter box. It is generally free of pests and less prone to disease than the parents.
