Needs plenty of room to grow. This tree prefers to not be overwatered.
This improved cultivar has large glossy leaves which are dark green on top with bronze brown undersides. The flowers are saucer sized, white and very fragrant. Magnolia 'DD Blanchard' is more pyramidal in shape than Magnolia grandiflora. The brown fruit pods are also large and split open to show bright red seeds in fall. Even though it is an evergreen, it does shed litter which some consider a nuisance as the leaves are so large.
Well draining rich, loamy soil
Columnar, Low branching, Pyramidal
