Franklinia

altamaha – A native tree with a past and quite rare. Discovered in Georgia in 1770; has not been seen in the wild since 1790. It’s a finicky fellow, sometimes starting out fussy and slow, but regardless is quite beautiful. It takes on the habit of a small tree or shrub depending on what it feels like doing. Really. Amend your soil with ample amounts of organic matter to help acidify the location and make certain it’s in a well drained place. Full sun or light shade is acceptable. 3″ white flowers have 5 petals and striking yellow centers.  Leaves change from a dark green to red-orange, sometimes even purple. 10-20’x6-15′.
