Plant Details: Cucumber Magnolia
5 - 8
Magnolia acuminata is an excellent shade tree of medium to large size, similar in size to M. acuminata var.subcordata which matures to 70'high x 30'wide. This deciduous magnolia is a native of the mountains of the eastern United States. It has green flowers in early spring that open just as the foliage begins to appear in the spring. A quick grower that will become a very nice shade tree in few years under good conditions. Like var.subcordata this species is grossly under utilized in eastern landscapes.
Plant Growing Conditions
These are nice, approximately 5' plus tall. Pick up only but may be able to arrange freight up the east coast.
