Searching Genus for Magnolia
As flowering trees, none can surpass the Magnolia. Attractive, bold-textured deciduous and evergreen shrubs and trees native to Asia and America. The American species usually bloom after the leaves appear, somewhat diminishing the floral effect. Many of the Asian species bloom before the leaves and are among the showiest. Some also have beautiful and large seed pods in the fall. Most grow best with ample moisture, but well-drained conditions in full sun. Part shade is tolerated, but may reduce flowering. In the North, provide a sheltered site out of prevailing winds.
MAGNOLIA acuminata (Moist Packed)
Cucumber or Mountain Magnolia
The most widespread of the eight native magnolia species in North America. Its habit is pyramidal when young, developing a straight trunk and a rounded crown. Flowers are greenish-yellow borne at the ends of the branches appearing after the leaves start developing.
This is the hardiest of the North American species and ranges into southern Ontario.
Seeds have been moist packed since harvest. Cold treatment required.
