|'Edith Bogue' is perhaps better suited to a more northerly garden, being fairly cold hardy and a good example of type. Those in warmer or more southerly gardens will want to opt for more attractive cultivars such as 'D.D. Blanchard' or 'Bracken's Brown Beauty'.This evergreen tree has a broadly conical growth habit. Leaves are dark green, leathery, glossy, broadly ovate, to 8 in. long with rust, hairy undersides. Large fragrant flowers are cup-shaped and creamy white with 9-10 petals up to 10 in. across.
