Collected in 1991 on the east side of Erlong Shan (mountain), Sichuan, China.


Native to several provinces in south central China, this evergreen tree, closely related to Gordonia, produces white, fragrant flowers that first appear in July.  At Quarryhill, blooms first appeared on a tree only 5 years in the ground.







 

 
Founded in 1987, Quarryhill is one of the pre-eminent Asian botanical gardens globally, featuring one of the largest collections of documented, wild-collected Asian plants in the world. It is centrally located for Sonoma, Marin and Napa counties as well as greater Northern California.
