Bigleaf Magnolia

An upright, loosely branched tree with clusters of incredibly large teardrop shaped pale green leaves. The leaves can be up to 24" long, and somewhat resemble banana tree leaves. Large, up to 11" across, fragrant flowers with multiple large white petals bloom in late spring or early summer and are followed by an open, cone-like seed structure.  The cluster of bright red fleshy seeds are embedded in a semi-woody, bristly cone that may persist into winter. A great understory tree, it requires consistently moist soil and protection from gusting winds which can tear the large leaves.
