Magnolia grandiflora

A large, iconic tree native to the southeastern US, the subgenera grandiflora includes many interesting species. This one is the classic Southern Magnolia that grows into a monumental pyramid of glossy-green foliage that in late Spring or early Summer serves as background for immense, lemony-sweet smelling, waxy-white blossoms.

The flowers, measuring 6" - 10" across, are followed by upright, cone-like pods with bright red seeds that slowly extrude and fall off. Avoid pruning this (or any) magnolia except to remove damaged wood.
