A stunning yellow-flowered Magnolia, with a profusion of elegantly tapered buds that open to large, fragrant, primrose-yellow blooms in spring. Blooms are replaced by large, dark green leaves on the neat, upright, pyramidal form. Well-suited for use as a landscape specimen, and a wonderful shade tree with its wide-spread branches. Big beautiful flowers should be viewed up close, so use as an accent around porches, patios or other outdoor living spaces. A favorite of the cottage garden, it won't grow too large. Spot into your favourite perennial or flowering shrub border for some fragrant romance. Best to keep out of hot afternoon sun, but will make the perfect tree offering colour and limited shade in a small city yard. Moderate growing; reaches 25 to 40 ft. tall, 12 to 20 ft. wide.
