Magnolia tripetala

Description

This is a species from the Eastern United States and was one of the first magnolia species described by botanists. The white or parchment coloured flowers appear in summer after the first leaves have developed. The foliage is large and tropical looking, but on the soft side so it needs shelter from wind.
The illustrated flower was a graft, with flowers normally appearing when the seedlings are 2-3m tall. The trees develop into a rounded canopy about 5m tall in 10 years. We have large specimens for collection only, and 1 – 1.5m seedlings for mail order.
