|Design Ideas||This tall, flowering Magnolia is durable enough to be a street tree, but also charming in country and cottage gardens. Its thin form allows it to be planted between multistory homes on narrow city lots. May also be lined up for a tall screen. A good front-yard specimen or a backyard standout when blooming against needled evergreens. A show stopper in the moonlight. Ideal for gardeners who are intimidated by Saucer Magnolia but want a similar white, romantic specimen tree.|
