Huge shade tree with erect clusters of yellow flowers in mid to late spring. Textured leaves are less prone to leaf spot and mildew than other Buckeyes. Grows quickly when young, slows down as it ages.
Best known for subtle yellow flowers in very early spring, often one of the first plants to bloom. Flowers are prolific but rather small so they stand out best against a darker colored backdrop. Tolerates partial shade and a wide range of soils. Very cold tolerant.
Flowers in late winter (February or March). Flowers range from yellow to orange and red-orange. Dark green leaves are interesting for their prominent veins, and irregular shape. Tolerates an incredible range of soils. Good for naturalizing, informal hedges, single specimen.
Mid-summer pendulous clusters of showy yellow flowers give way to very ornamental seed pods that resemble chinese lanterns – very showy. Yellow flowers are nicely highlighted against green foliage. A good urban tree, very adaptable.
A strikingly large tree at maturity, oldest specimens have been well over 100 feet tall. Grows very rapidly when young. Needs room to grow – probably best as a lawn or park tree. Has been described as aristocratic because large trees are striking and dramatic. Known for bright yellow fall color.
Large primrose-yellow flowers are quite striking. Mid-spring bloom typically avoids frost damage. Moderate grower has a distinctly pyramidal shape. Dark green leaves. Yellow-flowering Magnolias are a site to behold and this is no exception.
