Bring Saucer Magnolia blooms to your landscape: Magnolia x soulangeana

This is one of the first flowering trees of Spring, Saucer Magnolias will explode with blooms from now until mid-March. These medium, low-branched trees have large, saucer-shaped flowers, and offer elegant flowers for cutting into indoor branch arrangements. They are a welcome sign that Winter is nearing its end. Their fragrant, early-spring blossoms are shaded with light to deep pink or purplish-pink petals. The trees themselves have large deciduous, broad green leaves and take on a golden color in the Fall. In Winter you will see smooth silver-gray bark.
