Hardiness level Green
Introduced to Versailles by the Comte de Galissoniere in the 18th century, it is native to the southern United States. Though it can reach 20 metres there, 10 metres is more the norm in the UK. The leaves have rust coloured undersides and the huge white flowers are lemon scented.
Hardy, best grown in sun but protected from cold winds. They like a moist soil with high organic content.
As with all woody plants, plant high, exposing as much of the taper at the base of the trunk as possible. Allowing soil to accumulate round the base of a tree can be fatal. Keep very well watered when first planted.
