Star Magnolia is a small ornamental tree. There are not a lot of small trees is a great choice for those tight spots. But that is not this Magnolia tree's only asset! It has lots of great features.
Here are two varieties that I would recommend. I like them because of their small sizes. One has white flowers and the other has pink flowers.
Magnolia Royal Star has delicate white flowers and blooms early.
Many trees like full sun, but if you have a somewhat shady spot, consider this very pretty tree.
See below as to the many places to use these small trees. Many properties just don't have the room for large trees so this is a great choice.
I just love the color of the flowers on this tree...they are so striking.
Notice that this Magnolia Jane will grow in some different plant zones than Magnolia Royal Star.
Also, it is a bit larger. And its pink flowers are gorgeous!
I happen to love trees near the front door. They are so welcoming and it gives you or guests something pretty to look at as you near the entrance to your home.
Depending on the layout of your house, you might use one in the following locations:
These are wonderful trees to add to your landscape. The Magnolia Jane is particularly unique with its beautiful pink flowers.
