Magnolia x 'Elizabeth'
A fast grower, Magnolia 'Elizabeth' will become 20 ft tall faster than just about any other Magnolia hybrid, and it flowers abundantly! This hybrid of M. acuminata and M. denudata makes a very full and attractive specimen and was patented by the Brooklyn Botanical Garden in 1977. The FRAGRANT 3 inch wide light yellow flowers have tinges of yellow-green near the base of each flower, and cover the tree in late March. The tree will grow more than 1 ft per year, making it over 10 ft tall in 10 years, but will eventually be 20-35 ft tall over time. Known for its adaptability to temperature variations, this tree will handle -20 deg F in winter, and later in summer 100+.
