Huge dinner plate size extremely fragrant white flowers! These giant tropical-looking flowers start to unfurl, perfuming your landscape in late spring to early summer. The butterflies certainly will enjoy visiting these foot-wide flowers that smell lemony-fresh for many weeks. Edith Bogue is a carefully cultivated, improved variety of Southern Magnolia that works beautifully, even in smaller gardens. This is a durable, cold-hardy variety that grows well in Northern climates with strong branches that resist wind damage and wet snowfall. Like other Magnolias, the leaves, branches and even the fleshy roots smell like spiced vanilla. The large, elongated dark green leaves are very attractive, as well. In areas with mild winters, the leaves may remain on the tree all year-long. These semi-evergreen leaves behave as a deciduous tree in cold winters. It features attractive bark and a well-balanced branch structure, so it looks nice all year-long. Can reach 25-30' x 15-20'.
