Proliferous bloomer, reliable in the same area as one of the parents (C. nuttallii). Used as street-tree, lawn specimen, foundation planting. Resistant to anthracnose where C. nuttallii is not. Makes a spectacular show when in bloom.

Spectacular flowers and very floriferous. Eddies White Wonder is a hybrid between C. nuttallii and C. florida. This one must be propagated by grafting or budding.
