Franklin Tree


Franklinia alatamaha – Summer blooming
Extinct, Found only in cultivation

In 1765 John Bartram and his son William discovered the Franklin Tree growing along Georgia’s Altamaha River in a 2-3 acre area. They successfully grew plants from seeds they collected. This tree was never seen growing at any other place and by 1803 it was extinct in the wild.
