This bi-generic cross between Franklinia alatamaha and Gordonia lasianthos has semi-cupped and fringed large white flowers July-September. Unlike Franklinia, its leaves are evergreen, bright, polished green, and in exciting contrast to the occasional brilliant red or orange leaf! The flowers are much more open and outward-facing than those of Franklinia alatamaha and the leaves more horizontal. Rare, and a collector's plant, really anyone's plant, since it is so attractive and useful. It prefers rich soil and regular water. Bees absolutely go crazy for it!
