Magnolia – Alta

Product Detail

Product Overview

A columnar form that remains upright and tight year after year without pruning. Lustrous dark green leaves have rusty undersides. White, cup-shaped fragrant flowers. Valuable for smaller spaces in urban and suburban landscapes. Evergreen

Overview Care
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. In colder areas it can be grown spread out on a sunny wall. It also makes the perfect narrow evergreen screen or informal hedge.

Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Watering can be reduced after establishment. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring.
