Are there any Franklinia trees growing at NYBG?
Yes, we have several Franklinia trees located on the grounds here at The New York Botanical Garden. As of right now there are three newly planted specimens in the Native Plant Garden, located in the lower woodland section.
Here in the northeast U.S., Franklinia starts blooming in late summer and can continue flowering until the first frost. For information on Franklinia, visit the U.Conn. Plant Database, the Missouri Botanical Garden website, and the New Georgia Encyclopedia.
For tips on a variety of gardening topics, see our Plant Information Guides.
