Magnolia - Betty

The Betty Magnolia (Magnolia x 'Betty') grows upright to a height of 15 feet.  In the spring, the tree will be filled with blooms that are deep red to purple on the outside and white on the inside.  It is a late-blooming magnolia that is less apt to suffer frost damage in spring.  It takes 2 to 3 years to flower.

When the blooms subside, the foliage will begin to emerge with a copper hue and then transition to a deep green.  It is a slow growing tree and has a broad, rounded form at maturity.

‘Betty’ Magnolia is best grown in moist, organically rich, acidic, well-drained loams in full sun to part shade.  Plant it in a location protected from high winds and avoid southern exposures close to houses where the buds may be induced to open too early in spring. 

Good air circulation may reduce onset of powdery mildew, and a layer of mulch will keep the shallow roots moist.

This magnolia is a low maintenance rounded shrub that can be use for a mixed shrub border, city courtyard garden, cottage informal garden, or as a specimen or accent plant.
