Today, we’re featuring another lovely deciduous flowering tree–Japanese magnolia.
The Japanese magnolia is a gorgeous tree noticed in Central and North Florida when it blooms in spring. The large, tulip-shaped, usually pink flowers are a sight not easily forgotten.
The Japanese magnolia can grow to thirty feet tall. It’s low-maintenance, since few pests bother the tree, and little or no pruning is required. It will need to be watered during dry periods, as it’s not especially drought-tolerant.
Plant your Japanese magnolia in a fertile, well-drained soil. It can thrive in sunny or partial shade locations.
Your Japanese magnolia needs plenty of room to grow fully to its eventual breadth of about twenty-five feet.
Incorporate one of these lovely trees into your landscape for an amazing spring show!
