Description

Hybrid Magnolias are trees or shrubs and are among the most beautiful and popular landscape plants. A number of hybrid magnolias have been developed to provide a wider range of sizes, shapes and floral characteristics. They can range anywhere from 8 to 40 feet tall. The flowers are fragrant pink, purple, white or yellow saucer-shaped flowers usually in spring.

Most prefer full sun in acidic moist well-drained soils. Use them as a flowering tree, in the shrub border or as specimens.

Disease, pests, and problems: Magnolia scale, Verticillium wilt, chlorosis in high pH soils.
