Description: This a critically endangered plant native to Apalachicola River hills and bluffs in the Florida panhandle. Although naturally a large tree to 80 ft prior to the 1950s, it now attains a height of only about 8 ft. (often as a trunk resprout) due to the deleterious effects of a fungal blight that has nearly wiped out the species.
