Tulip Saucer Magnolia
Magnolia × soulangiana
Magnolia x soulangiana, commonly known as saucer
magnolia, is a deciduous hybrid magnolia. It is the most
commonly grown deciduous magnolia. It is a broad shrub or
small tree that typically rises to 20-25’ tall with a rounded
crown. It is often grown in a multi-trunked shrubby form. It
typically matures over time to 20-30’ tall and as wide.
Fragrant flowers (to 8” across) bloom in early spring (late
March to mid-April) before the foliage emerges. Flowers are
pink with white interiors. Sparse numbers of additional
flowers may bloom sporadically later in spring on new
growth. Grows best in zones 4-9.
