Info

Magnolia grandiflora is known as the Southern Magnolia, a dominating landscape element throughout the southern states, often thought of as the symbol of American South. Heat resistant and tolerant of damp soil but requires protection from cold winter winds, ice, and snow. The slow growing tree does require maintenance, a lot of water, and the roots can lift walks, but the tree provides dense, year round shade. Leaves are leathery in texture, dark glossy green above, thick, red-brown felt underneath. Large, creamy white flowers with lemon scent can grow to 14" across and are borne from May-June. You will find that the leaves regenerate and fall May-September. Fruit is borne September through November. Grows to 60' height.
