Sometimes called an Umbrella Tree. Native to the south-central U.S., this tropical looking, deciduous Magnolia hosts the largest leaves and flowers of the genus, measuring up to 3' x 1½', respectively. Leaves show silvery undersides, and fragrant, cup shaped, white and purple flowers appear May-June. May take up to 15 years to flower, but well worth the wait! Reaching 30-50' at maturity, this awesome tree does best in rich, moist locations protected from wind and direct sun.

Big Leaf Magnolia looks like a banana plant when it is young. It needs to be grown in a somewhat sheltered location because of the wind damage on the leaves. Reaching 30-50', the tree needs a large space. The flowers are huge but often hidden by the leaves. zone 5

Throw a party when it blooms! Huge ivory goblets brush stroked with red in the center. Huge leaves go great with Gunnera. Slow growth to 30 ft. Moist rich soil.
