Ornamental Tree with Spectacular Spring Flowers
The Star Magnolia is a deciduous tree with a spectacular spring display. One would look beautiful near a patio or entrance, and they are also eye-catching in naturalized areas.
Your Star Magnolia will be one of the first trees to bloom in the spring, and what a bloom it is!
In early spring, your Magnolia will burst into pristine, white color with pale pink highlights. The fragrant, 4-inch flowers have multiple petals. Each petal is elongated in appearance presenting an overall exotic, somewhat fluffy-looking affect. The star-like blossoms cover the branches before the foliage has even had time to erupt, contributing to the spectacular display.
Star Magnolia trees have a spreading nature with the crown displaying a pleasant, rounded appearance. The narrow, oblong leaves are dark green and fill your tree out nicely for a dense, dynamic appearance. Those same leaves will turn a yellow hue in autumn for some winter definition. The fall also brings red seeds that are a banquet for your wildlife.
Your Star Magnolia is one of the smallest Magnolia trees available, so even if you don’t have much space, it will feel right at home in your landscape. It doesn’t require any special care and is resistant to the Magnolia Scale that is often a problem with other varieties of Magnolia trees.
If you’re looking for a tree that is sure to provide beauty and elegance for many years, the Star Magnolia an outstanding choice for your home.
