Description

Magnolias prefer a spot in the garden that receives full sun to light shade.  If possible, avoid exposed, windy locations because strong winds can damage large flowers and the typically brittle branches.  Most magnolias grow best in moist, well-drained, slightly acid soils but neutral to slightly alkaline soils are also suitable for growth. Magnolias are adaptable to clay, loam or sand soils, but most grow poorly in wet or poorly drained soils. Well-established plants can be moderately drought tolerant.
