As a matched pair, this Magnolia is particularly charming flanking a decorative gateway or piece of sculpture. Lovely lined up and evenly spaced in long, narrow formal beds surrounded by hedges or low-growing flowering shrubs. Small enough to grow in the side yard as a screen. Ideal for town houses and condominiums.|
