Titi or Cyrilla species have been as a group of native evergreens over looked year after year as a desirable plant for your landscape. The species at hand, racemiflora, has the most interesting growth habit and that is that it looks as if it were grown in a tornado with its twisted gnarly limbs and trunk growth habit. This species is the largest in the Genus in America. Cyrilla racemiflora produces dark green new summer foliage and pendulous 8" long catkins of white flowers cover the plant in June like fireworks. When fall arrives bring some of its fall foliage which turn flaming orange then red with the old summer fruits/seed still attached that are tan in color making a striking display. In winner in minimum temperature will dictate how much foliage actually drops in early winter. Mature size in zone 8 and warmer is 20'High x 20'Wide.
