All the nuttallis are native to the NW and I don't suggest them for any other area. They are very susceptible to anthracnose even in the NW but , as they are large trees, people don't look at them too carefully, and at a distance they are pretty spectacular with their large white flowers, often with a fall bloom also, and good fall color. zone 6.

Huge "flower" bracts, 6-8"across!, decorate this wonderful medium-sized tree ; its large, heavily-textured leaves provide wonderful yellow-to-red fall color as well; sturdy ; vigorous... a fine tree. PSh/Med/GdDrain

Amaze your gardening friends with the huge flowers that can be up to 8" across. Thick sturdy stems. I think this one has be nipping steroids. Medium sized tree.
