I remember meeting this dwarf pawpaw, first at Woodlanders in South Carolina, then finally in 2007 in the wilds of north Florida, thanks to plantsman Dick Weaver. This amazing dwarf 2' tall x 2' wide shrub is clothed with long, narrow green leaves, and adorned in May with large white magnolia-like flowers, each highlighted with a purple stained center...greatly oversized for the plant. Being native to dry sandy soils of north Florida, south Georgia, and a few counties in Alabama, Asimina angustifolia should be planted in very well drained soils.
