Description A stunning yellow-flowered Magnolia, with a profusion of elegantly tapered buds that open to large, fragrant, primrose-yellow blooms in spring. Blooms are replaced by large, dark green leaves on the neat, upright, pyramidal form. Well-suited for use as a landscape specimen, and a wonderful shade tree with its wide-spread branches. Deciduous.
Light Full sun
Watering Once established, water deeply when dry.
Blooms Mid to Late Spring
Mature Size Moderate growing; reaches 25 to 40 ft. tall, 12 to 20 ft. wide.
Deciduous/Evergreen Deciduous
Growth Rate Moderate
Flower Attributes Flowers for Cutting, Fragrant, Showy Flowers
Patent Act Asexual reproduction of plants protected by the Plant Patent Act is prohibited during the life of the patent.
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.
Flower Color Yellow
Foliage Color Green
Companion Plants Wisteria (Wisteria); Hydrangea (Hydrangea); Lily-of-the-Valley Shrub (Pieris); Azalea (Azalea); Clethra (Clethra)
Care 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.
