Saucer Magnolia

The Saucer Magnolia is a beautiful multi-stem specimen that can be used as a focal point, part of a planting bed or as a standalone. In the spring, showy saucer-shaped fragrant white and pink flowers bloom on bare branches, followed by dark green foliage. This tree grows about 1-2’ per year topping off at 20-30’ h x 20-25’ w at maturity. Saucer magnolias are fairly easy to maintain with little to no upkeep. However, when planting choose a well-draining area that receives at least 5-6 hours of full sun. Something to keep in mind if choosing a magnolia, late spring frosts have been known to kill off buds. Although unsightly, as the buds will turn black, this will not harm the tree but will kill the flowers for that season.
