Quick Overview:

The Alta™ Southern Magnolia is the perfect choice for limited spaces and smaller gardens, because it has full-sized blossoms on a narrow, columnar tree that is never more than 10 feet wide. The leaves are large, but narrow, keeping the tree neat and in proportion. The 10-inch blossoms spread their broad petals in spring, and bloom for more than two months, releasing a delicious, rich fragrance. This tree is perfect for a lawn specimen in a smaller garden, or for planting against brick walls between windows

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.
