Mountain Gordlinia

x Gordlinia grandiflora

The large, up to 5" wide, white, flattened to cupped, sweetly fragrant flowers are centered by a boss of nicely contrasting egg-yolk yellow stamens with flowering beginning in early to midsummer and continuing until late summer. A cross-generic hybrid of the native Franklinia and Gordinia, the Mountain Gordlinia, x Gordlinia grandiflora, is a semi-evergreen small tree to multi-trunked large shrub with red to orange fall color that continues through winter on any retained foliage. It is a little more vigorous and is considered to be slightly easier to grow than its parents but still needs a quality loamy soil, rich in organic matter with consistent moisture and an organic mulch over the root zone. Provide afternoon shade, especially in hot summer climates. Still new to horticulture, the Mountain Gordlinia is the result of hybridization work by Tom Ranney and Paul Fantz in 2003 aiming for a more disease resistant, longer lived, and more reliable garden plant with all the great qualities of the parent species. You can read the scientific article about their work at the following link on the NCSU extension website: https://mcilab.ces.ncsu.edu/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/ranney-and-fantz-2006.pdf?fwd=no.
