Franklinia alatamaha, also known as the Franklin Tree, is a beautiful deciduous large shrub or small tree that is commercially available for garden cultivation. This plant is prized for its fragrant, white flowers that appear mid-summer to early fall, with shiny dark green leaves that turn orange and red in the fall. The tree has a symmetrical, somewhat pyramidal shape with multiple trunks close to ground level. It prefers moist, acidic, woodland-type soil with full sun exposure. It has been extinct in the wild for over 200 years after being observed growing along the Altamaha River valley in Georgia. All Franklin Trees found today are descendants of seed collected by botanist William Bartram and propagated at Bartram's Garden in Philadelphia. This plant species is notoriously difficult to cultivate, requiring a specific type of soil and being susceptible to root-rot disease. However, their beauty and uniqueness make them a prized addition to any garden. Get your own Franklin Tree today and enjoy its beauty for generations to come!
