Franklin Tree

  • A beautiful tree with a pyramidial shape, the Franklin Tree is a great option for a fall bloomer.  By late summer, fragrant, white camellia-like flowers emerge with yellow centers.  Glossy green leaves, fuzzy on the bottom, also turn brilliant orange, red and purple in the fall.   Naturally grows as a multi-stemmed tree but can be pruned as a single trunk. Makes an outstanding focal tree. Extinct in the wild.
