Magnolia Betty

· Here is a great specimen tree for a base in a flower bed

· Magnolia is thought of as a southern tree, but Betty is good to zone 4

· Prefers moist well-draining soil in full sun to partial shade; if possible, give it some winter wind protection

· Mature H 12’ x 10’ W

· Smothered in reddish purple blooms in the spring. Flowers before leaving out.

· Steady grower and long lived. Low maintenance – mulch in summer for moisture.
