Magnolia ‘Lois’ is a type of magnolia tree that produces pale yellow flowers that are cup-shaped in the middle of spring. The tree flowers a little later than its relatives, the Stellata and Soulangeana varieties, which helps the ‘Lois’ variety be safer from frost. The tree is primarily used as an ornamental tree and is valued for the flowers, shade, and beauty it provides.
