Gordonia axillaris yunnanense

A choice selection with glaucous foliage and soft red stems on new growth. Huge "poached egg" flowers smother the tree from mid Winter to early Spring. A vigorous grower. A small tree or large shrub, at maturity Gordonia could have a height and width of 5m with a large dome shaped canopy. It has decorative bark, glossy deep green leaves and white single flowers with a large boss of yellow stamens in the middle during autumn. Flowers fall in wide carpets resembling a carpet of fried eggs.

Height:  5 metres.

Width:   5 metres.

Growth rate: Fast.

Form:  Dome shaped canopy

Foliage:  Glossy deep green leaves

Flower: white single flowers with a large boss of yellow stamens in the middle during autumn.
Tolerances: Performs best in full sun to partial shade. Severe frosts can be problematic for this tree. Moderately drought tolerant but will benefit from mulching in summer and supplementary watering during dry spells. Prunes well to form a hedge.

Landscape use: Use as a single feature tree to complement sasanquas. The perfect small tree for small gardens.
