Spectacular Fast Growing Tree with Unique Spring Flowers
The Saucer Magnolia is a beautiful ornamental tree that would serve as a lovely specimen plant for your front or side yard. The Magnolia prefers a bit of protection, so placement beside your house or outbuilding would be good choice.
The most endearing feature of this tree is its early spring cup-like blossoms that are white with a purple blush. The unique 6-10 inch blooms lend the tree an enchanting appearance as the flowers appear like delicate goblets placed among the leafless branches.
The sweet fragrance will soon draw nectar and pollen-gathering insects to your yard. Hummingbirds will particularly love to sip from the blossomed cups as the Magnolia’s serves up its spring bounty.
As summer advances, vibrant 6 inch long, medium green leaves will fill out your Magnolia. It can reach a height of 25 feet with an equal spread. Without pruning, this tree takes on a multi-stemmed branching habit that lends it a lovely rounded form, with a symmetry that will compliment any location in your yard. In the fall, your Magnolia’s leaves will turn an earthy yellow-brown, to accent the more common brighter fall colors.
The Saucer Magnolia is a beautiful ornamental tree for your yard with unique spring flowers you’ll enjoy for years to come.
