Butterflies Magnolia

The Butterflies Magnolia (M. Acuminata x M. Denudata) is a wonderful small tree for those who adore the showy flowers magnolia trees are known for but are looking for something new and exciting. The tree blooms very early in the spring season, and the soft yellow flowers offer spectacular contrast to the well-loved pink on white of other common flowering trees. The Butterflies Magnolia has large double blooms reaching 4 to 5 inches across. Growing 25-30 tall and spreading to 10-15 ft, this tree can also offer some shade in the hot summer months. It should be planted in full sun or very light shade. This cultivar is so low maintenance, it needs almost no pruning. It can however be shaped to suit your yard best. You may also choose between a single-stem and a multi-stem variety. This cold hardy Magnolia Tree can be grown in zones 4-9. In order to ensure the healthiest tree possible, it should be grown in slightly acidic, well-draining, and nutrient soils. To protect the blooms and take advantage of as much bloom time as possible it should be planted somewhere protected from high winds, as it will severely shorten the time spent enjoying the blooms.
