The Susan Magnolia is a small tree growing 8 to 12 feet tall and spreading about the same width. In early spring the bare branches are smothered in large, upright flowers with deep purple-red backs on the petals, and paler pink-purple interiors. The flowers are a full 5 inches across when open, and this tree is a highlight of spring. It is hardy in zone 4, and specially bred to be a reliable bloomer in cold zones. Plant it as a beautiful lawn specimen, or along the edge of a wooded area. Grow it among large shrubs, or around your home. This beautiful tree is irresistible.

  • Spectacular purple-red blooms in spring
  • Spreading small tree is ideal for smaller spaces
  • Top choice for colder zones, with reliable blooming
  • Easily grown in a suitable location
  • Perfect lawn specimen, or along the edge of woodlands

Grow the Susan Magnolia in moist, well-drained soil in full sun or partial shade. It grows best in cool, moist soil, so use a mulch over the roots, and water during dry spells to achieve this. Choose the planting spot carefully, as it does not transplant well once established. It has no significant pests or diseases and it is easy to grow if the location is suitable. No pruning or special care is needed to enjoy this spectacular plant in your own garden, even if it is a small one.
