 Magnolia grandiflora
Family: Magnoliaceae
Bull Bay, Southern Magnolia
Small tree 10-20 ftFull sunModerate waterWhite/off-white flowersFragrantAttracts butterflies, hummingbirdsSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

Southern magnolia is a fast-growing, medium-sized, native evergreen tree that grows 60 to 90 feet (18-27 m) tall. The large, white flowers are perfect and fragrant. The seeds are drupelike with a soft, fleshy outer seed coat and an inner stony portion. Southern magnolia develops a deep taproot. As trees grow the root structure changes. Trees of sapling stage and beyond have a rather extensive root system. Older trees develop a fluted base with the ridges corresponding to the attachment of major lateral roots.

The Little Gem Magnolia is a slow-growing hybrid that is sometimes called a "dwarf". It will get tall, but not nearly as tall as the M. grandiflora, and it grows very slowly. It may grow to be 8 - 10' wide. It has blooms on it when it is very young, and in container. The leaves are smaller and some have more "golden rust" color on the underside. These magnolias are prizedfor small lawns, and their popularity is growing.

Magnolia grandiflora Edith Bogue - Southern magnolia

Click to see full-size image

Edith Bogue is a broad-spreading, vigorous clone of southern magnolia that is noted for its exceptional hardiness (zone 7-9). It rates as one of the best southern magnolias for the Pacific Northwest. Large, very fragrant, ivory-white flowers adorn the tree from late spring through midsummer. The large, lustrous, leathery leaves look great year round. The slow growth and controlled size of Edith Bogue make it a good choice for courtyard and patio plantings, and its branches have a strong resistance to breaking.
RECOMMENDED FERTILIZERS:
Pink N Good Daily Plant Food - Flower Booster
Tropical Allure - Smart-Release Booster
