Unique Upright, Fragrant Variety

  • Narrow Form Fits in Small Yards
  • Blooms Later Past Threat of Frost
  • Pretty Pink, Fragrant Flowers

You've probably noticed a hot new trend in trees - the columnar form. These narrow trees hold their branches strongly upright (or "fastigate" for you plant nerds, and you know who you are!) There is a great reason you see this form more often. We simply have smaller yards nowadays.

Now, you know Magnolia as a lovely, wide-spreading tree that puts on a floral display in spring that can't be beat. Pastel pink flowers get 6-8 inches wide as they fully open. We're talking those huge, showy, delicate blooms that just catch your eye and make you glad to be alive. 

Did you know you have another option? Daybreak Magnolia (Magnolia 'Daybreak) is a columnar variety that stays narrow. It blooms a bit later than other Magnolias, which is good, as the threat of any mean-spirited late winter storms will have passed.

Give this plant - like all Magnolias - protection from the worst of the winds in your yard. You'll feel protective of the large, bright pink flowers that feature a wonderful fragrance, so take the time to study your lot and site it perfectly.

Use it as a specimen tree in a tiny yard. The large leaves provide a delicious sense of shade for your seating area.

Or, plant several together in a long row, and allow the lower branches to grow. You'll love this gorgeous, hard-working screen to create a wonderful sense of privacy along a property line, or to delineate the "walls" of a garden room.
