Quick Overview:

Magnolia stellata, commonly called star magnolia, is a large deciduous shrub or small tree that typically grows with a rounded crown.  It is noted for its late winter (February) to early spring (March) bloom of star-shaped white flowers. Since blooms open early, they are subject to frost damage so plant in a protected site.  It is the earliest of the deciduous magnolias to flower.  Good heat tolerance.

Description

Best grown in moist, organically rich, well-drained loams in full sun to part shade. Generally intolerant of soil extremes (dry or wet). Intolerant of most urban pollutants. Best sited in a location protected from high winds, but generally avoid southern exposures where the buds may be induced to open too early in late winter. This cultivar blooms about 2 weeks later than the species is accordingly less susceptible to frost problems.  (Courtesy of Missouri Botanical Garden Plant Finder)
