Franklinia alatamaha

The Franklinia tree was discovered in the 1700s and was native to the Altamaha River valley in Georgia. It’s now considered functionally extinct in the wild. You may find a few specimens left in human landscapes. This tree grows well in the Mid-Atlantic and at one point in time, may have been native to the Mid-Atlantic region before it was diminished to a small region in Georgia. This tree may have a single trunk or have multiple stems. Leaves are dark green and glossy. This tree offers beautiful, fragrant, white flowers. Flowers have five petals with yellow centers and will attract a large variety of pollinators.
