Overview Care
The Saucer magnolia is a southern garderner favorite.  The Saucer is a slow growing, low-branched, deciduous tree capable of reaching 25 feet in height and width. In late winter, the fuzzy gray, pinky-sized buds expand rapidly and produce 5-inch diameter, cup-shaped blooms, usually with nine petals. The tulip shaped blossoms give rise to the common name, tulip tree. The outer surface of the petals are pinkish-purple while the inner surface is white. The Chinese have a wonderful name for these magnolias - Yingchunhua - which means "welcoming-spring flower."

Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring.Pruning time: winter.
