Magnolia ‘Butterflies’

Arbor walk #82

This is a deciduous hybrid magnolia resulting from a cross between M. acuminata and M. denudata. It is notable for its yellow flowers, late vegetative growth, compact pyramidal form, and ability to withstand both heat and cold. It can grow as an upright pyramidal tree with a single trunk or as a multi-stemmed shrub.

It blooms from late winter to early spring into upright, and displays yellow flowers similar to tulips that last for about 7 to 9 days.
