|Bloom Time||Mid to Late Spring|
|Design Ideas||This lovely small tree is a yellow deciduous variety that extends its range well beyond that of evergreen Magnolia. Big beautiful flowers should be viewed up close, so use as an accent around porches, patios or other outdoor living spaces. A favorite of the cottage garden, it won't grow too large. Spot into your favorite perennial or flowering shrub border for some fragrant romance. Best to keep out of hot afternoon sun, but will make the perfect tree offering color and limited shade in a small city yard.|

Provide deep, enriched, acidic, moist, well-drained soil. Thrives in all but the coldest of climates, with protection from harsh winter winds. Water deeply, regularly during the first few growing seasons to establish an extensive root system; once established, reduce frequency. Fertilize before new growth begins in spring.
