Gordonia is an impressive lush evergreen large shrub or small tree that bears large white flowers from mid-winter to spring. The leaves are leathery and deep green, the flowers resemble large creamy white single camellia flowers, unsurprisingly as gordonia are in the same family. The flowers tend to fall right side up, looking like a carpet of fried eggs.
Gordonias like a humus rich, slightly acidic, well drained soil. They respond well to a light prune after flowering.
Gordonia axillaris originates in China, and the name commemorates James Gordon, an eighteenth century nurseryman.
