Design IdeasThis smaller yet exquisite dark flowering magnolia is the ideal early spring specimen for a close range focal point. Provides a vital seasonal accent tree integrated into foundation plantings. Well sized for edges of perennial borders or mixed borders with a background of tall, dark evergreens. Vital in pairs in the formal or Colonial composition and with federal style architecture. Superior urban front yard tree for high attention in the early season. Beautifully featured as a backdrop to flowering shrubs such as Rhododendrons, Camellias or Azaleas. Contributes a note of elegance in historic institutional plantings.
Care Information
Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Watering can be reduced after establishment. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring.
