Design Ideas: This dwarf Southern magnolia can be used as a large shrub or small tree depending on the way it is pruned. Plants adapt well against sunny building walls where foliage provides a striking contrast. Makes a lovely single specimen for smaller urban gardens as accent tree. Plant in a row to create an evergreen privacy screen along low fences and walls. Particularly lovely background for light value shrubs and perennials, or for outstanding sculpture and treillage. Adapts well to large pots for portable accents.

Provide deep, nutrient-rich, acidic, well-drained soil. Water deeply, regularly in first few growing seasons to establish an extensive root system. Once established, reduce watering frequency; best with regular moisture, but will tolerate brief periods of drought. Feed in early spring before new growth emerges.

History

It is also considered the largest native flower in North America. It's equally generous seed pods feed a wide variety of wildlife.
