A beautiful flowering accent tree for smaller home landscapes, smothered in showy and fragrant white cup-shaped flowers in spring through fall; large glossy leaves with reddish-brown undersides and an upright, broad habit of growth
Timeless Beauty® Magnolia is smothered in stunning fragrant white cup-shaped flowers held atop the branches from mid spring to early fall. It has attractive dark green foliage with khaki (brownish-green) undersides. The large glossy pointy leaves are highly ornamental and turn coppery-bronze in the fall, which persists throughout the winter. The fruits are showy red pods displayed from early to late fall.
Timeless Beauty® Magnolia is an evergreen tree with an upright spreading habit of growth. Its relatively coarse texture can be used to stand it apart from other landscape plants with finer foliage.
This is a relatively low maintenance tree, and should only be pruned after flowering to avoid removing any of the current season's flowers. Deer don't particularly care for this plant and will usually leave it alone in favor of tastier treats. It has no significant negative characteristics.
Timeless Beauty® Magnolia is recommended for the following landscape applications;
Planting & Growing
Timeless Beauty® Magnolia will grow to be about 20 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 25 feet. It has a low canopy with a typical clearance of 2 feet from the ground, and is suitable for planting under power lines. It grows at a medium rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for 70 years or more.
This tree does best in full sun to partial shade. It requires an evenly moist well-drained soil for optimal growth, but will die in standing water. It may require supplemental watering during periods of drought or extended heat. It is not particular as to soil type, but has a definite preference for acidic soils. It is somewhat tolerant of urban pollution, and will benefit from being planted in a relatively sheltered location. Consider applying a thick mulch around the root zone in winter to protect it in exposed locations or colder microclimates. This is a selection of a native North American species.
