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. The tree will quickly reach a full 50’ high and 35’ wide, so pick your spot wisely! 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* Cold hardy* Fast grower to 50’ tall* Huge scented flowers* Branches are great for floral arrangements.
Big Magnolia Flowers on a Petite Magnolia Tree! Magnolias are those evergreen stalwarts of gardens all over the US. Their big beautiful leaves and massive sweet smelling flowers are always welcome in the landscape. Unfortunately, some gardens aren’t big enough to handle a full-sized magnolia tree. Or you might have a place – a perennial border or evergreen foundation bed – where you’d love the color and flowers of a magnolia, but not the size. Little Gem Magnolia is a shrub-like tree that has all of the great qualities of full-sized magnolia in much less space. Its 8-inch creamy-white flowers even last longer than its bigger cousins. It blooms so early that it will have flowers for almost a full six months! Not to be outdone by the flowers, the leaves, with their glossy green tops and fuzzy brown undersides, are equally as beautiful in cut flowers arrangements as the flowers. Super tough, this tree can handle winters better than most. In the south it will even grow in the winter months! If you have limited planting space, the narrow column shape will fit just about anywhere. Little Gem isn’t a dwarf, though. It can grow to a full 20 feet tall in 7 or 8 years. Little Gem is one of the most commonly grown of all the magnolias, and for good reason. Fit one into your landscape today! * Easy care* Beautiful shape* Full-sized flowers and leaves* Drought tolerant once established.
