Magnolia grandiflora

#13 - Southern Magnolia (Magnolia grandiflora) 'Edith Bogue'

One of the showiest magnolias, the Southern Magnolia can grow up to 80 feet tall and 30 to 50 feet wide with white, waxy flowers up to a foot across. The cone-like fruits that follow split open in fall to reveal flame-red seeds. The tree is marginally hardy in our area, but the cultivar 'Edith Bogue' does well if planted in a protected area. The large, dark green leaves with their fuzzy brown undersides remain on the tree year-round.
