A Big Beauty for a Big Yard!

D.D. Blanchard Southern Magnolia (Magnolia grandiflora DD Blanchard ) is one of the most magnificent yard trees available on the market today. Make sure that when you buy it, you give it pride of place and room to grow!

Even though there are several cultivars of Magnolia out there, this is the cream of the crop for size. The D.D. Blanchard Magnolia growth rate is fast.

This strong evergreen has the classic Magnolia leaf shape- glossy green on top, fuzzy brown on the bottom - except that the leaves are as big as your face. A branch or two in a big vase makes you look like a professional designer...and that's without using any of the flowers! A single D.D. Blanchard Southern Magnolia flower can perfume a whole room. They are big flowers with a big scent to match. Theses creamy white, vase-shaped beauties are as big as a cereal bowl.

Nothing about D.D. Blanchard is little, especially the "Oohs!" and "Aahs!" you'll get from your neighbors when you plant this wonderful Magnolia in your yard this year!

  • Magnificent Evergreen
  • Huge Scented Flowers
  • Branches Are Great Floral Arrangements
