Quick Overview:

‘D.D. Blanchard’ is a magnificent cultivar with unique large dark green leaves and rusty brown undersides. It has the ability to maintain a straight central trunk, which allows it to be grown full to the ground or be pruned into tree form with a visible trunk. Open branched pyramidal form makes an excellent shade tree with huge cup-shaped flowers in early summer. The fragrant blossoms can be 8″ in width. ‘D.D. Blanchard’ originated at Robbins Nursery in North Carolina.

Description

It is best grown in moist, organically rich, well-drained loams in full sun to part shade. It is generally intolerant of soil extremes (dry or wet). It is also intolerant of many urban pollutants. Trees will become quite large over time and should be planted in areas where they can expand.
