An excellent specimen or landscape tree. Plant Magnolia in full sun or partial shade in moist, well-drained, slightly acid soil. Pruning requirements are minimal—remove dead or broken branches in late winter or early spring when the plant is dormant. Other pruning can be done as needed after bloom.
In mid-spring, before its leaves appear, ‘Butterflies’ covers itself with glorious, 4-5” yellow flowers that sit upright on the branches. After 10 years, plants will reach about half their full size.
