The most unique aspect of this eye-catching tree is that its bright yellow blossoms are striped with pink! How cool is that! When its beautiful blossoms open up, it exposes its purple eye from which the pink stripes spill.

This magnolia’s bright yellow blossoms bud in the spring and its huge, dark green foliage follows in the summer. But don’t let this dramatic tree fool you! The Sunsation Magnolia is a rather small accent tree. It would be the perfect centerpiece to any garden!

Not only is this tree appealing to you and your neighbors, but the pollinators love it too! This tree will be buzzing with busy bees and singing with songbirds all season long!

This tree is rather low maintenance, but does not like winter weather. Applying a thick layer of mulch at the root of the tree is key to optimal growth. It is not resistant to air pollution so avoiding urban areas when planting is ideal.

This magnolia tree is not picky when it comes to its soil, but it prefers acidic soil that is moist and well-drained. Planting this tree in a sunny area with good airflow will give it the perfect environment to thrive!
