This native of China, Korea and Japan is a small deciduous tree with a broad, spreading habit. It produces fragrant flowers in late spring that may appear sporadically throughout summer. Each small bowl-shaped bloom is white and has a distinctive cluster of red stamens in the center. These are slightly fragrant and glow against its large, oval, dark to gray-green leaves. The aggregate fruits that follow are a pink. In fall, the foliage turns shades of yellow and gold before dropping off.
This easy-to-grow magnolia grows best in full to partial sun and fertile, acid to neutral soil. Avoid disturbing its roots, even with a lawnmower, as this may cause stress and decline. Placing a thick carpet of mulch under its canopy will help protect the roots. This species is great for large open lawns and foundations. This slow-growing, broad-spreading small tree is an ideal specimen plant. It is particularly stunning when viewed from underneath. Planting it along a tall retaining wall allows passers-by to appreciate it from a low vantage point. (info source: Learn2Grow.com)

Useful Info
Germination1. Soak the seeds in water to soften the coating. Change the water every day for 3 or 4. Use your fingers or rub between paper towels to wash the coating off.
2. Stratify the seeds in the refrigerator for 30-40 days in a damp medium (steriule sand, peat moss or damp paper towels) in a plastic tub or bag and then bring them out into room temp. 70 degrees F (20-22 C). Or plant them outside.
3. Once sprouted the young seedlings/trees need protection for the first couple of years from weather extremes and critters. If you're planting outside, wait until after winter.
