|Botanical Pronunciation||mag-NOH-lee-uh sew-lan-gee-AH-na|
|Average Size at Maturity||Moderate grower to 20 to 25 ft. tall and wide; smaller as a shrub.|
|Design Ideas||A medium-sized flowering tree that is unmatched for elegant beauty and old-fashioned charm. Plant as a single specimen in the front yard or flank your entry walk with a matched pair. This is a darker Saucer Magnolia that produces better color for larger landscapes, where it stands out even at a distance. Such large softly colored blossoms make a great study near patios, porches and other outdoor living spaces. Can be planted as a small city street tree, but does not do well where pavement is salted in winter.|
|Flower Attribute||Flowers for Cutting, Fragrant, Showy Flowers|

|Soil Needs||Tree & Shrub Food|
|Special Feature||Year-round Interest|
|Watering Needs||Needs regular watering - weekly, or more often in extreme heat.|
Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. For a formal appearance, shear annually after flowering.
