Description Gosh, what can I say about this gorgeous native evergreen tree? Lets start with the fact that most gardeners and garden center would look at you like a deer in headlights if you asked them about this species! It is a tall fast growing broad leaf evergreen tree that flowers from June to November producing pure white magnolia like flowers. The flowers are 2-3" across and born in abundance and continuously all summer. Gordonia lasianthus can attain heights of 50-60" but only get 15-20"wide. It must be placed in a moist soils and will not tolerate drought. Ours was planted 2006, two years ago as a one gallon about 2' High at the time and now is 10'tall and 5'wide. This summer(08)so far it has produced near 150 flowers by September with more developing as I type. There is much to recommend this native if you have a wet, moist, or lake margin you would like to have a evergreen tree that flowers all summer!
