Magnolia ‘Butterflies’

Butterflies Magnolia is a beautiful ornamental tree.  Light yellow 3-4″ blooms in April brighten any spring landscape.  The tree can reach 15-30′ in height with Nebraska conditions leaning towards the smaller eventual size.  Width is comparable at 12-20′.  The blooms are delicate and short lived if the tree is exposed to strong winds.  I recommend this tree to be planted in a protected back yard with good, rich organic soil.  Keep the roots from becoming waterlogged through berming the soil as well.
