A friend is looking for what is called a Primrose Tree that grows in the Carolinas. It is supposed to be an ornamental tree not too terribly tall. Tried to find it for them in Plant Scout with no success. It has flowers of white with a red center or purple. Does anyone have an ideas?
Does anyone know about this tree?
Sounds like it might be some kind of perennial hibiscus.
There is a primrose tree (Lagunaria patersonii). most of them have pink blossoms but it does have white varieties. https://www.google.com/search?q=primrose+tree&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ei=bUH5UZGUOYbo8QTB-IC4BA&sqi=2&ved=0CC0QsAQ&biw=1440&bih=785 http://selectree.calpoly.edu/treedetail.lasso?-MaxRecords=50&-SkipRecords=0&-Op=bw&rid=799
