Plant Details: Black Titi
7 - 10
Cliftonia monophylla has great potential that the nursery trade has not yet caught on to. Evergreen, large shrub or small tree graced with pink flowers is welcome in our garden anytime, we would feel incomplete without it! This form from south Alabama has pink flowers which are born in large quantities. Black Titi flowers in late March - April with 3-4" erect spikes on the terminal ends of each stem. Showy clusters of yellow three winged fruit follow the flowers and persist all summer until fall. Cliftonia is a shrub or small tree with evergreen leathery alternate leaves. It grows best in moist to wet sunny locations and reaches a mature size of 15-30'High x 15'wide. A great native alternative for average to wet sunny locations. Privacy fence anyone?
