Bracken’s Brown Southern Magnolia is likely the fastest-growing and densest variety of this popular tree. It can add 2 feet of growth each year when young, soon becoming a gorgeous pyramid that will ultimately reach 50 feet. The leaves are glossy and attractive, with pronounced brown backs, especially visible in spring. It begins to flower almost immediately, with 4-inch white, fragrant blooms smothering it all through late spring and early summer. A perfect specimen for a larger garden, and also superb as a fast-growing screen or avenue. It can be grown on a south-facing wall in zone 5, and thrives in coastal gardens too.

  • Very dense branching making an bold pyramid
  • Spring leaves are light-green with soft brown undersides
  • Many 4-inch fragrant white blooms from May through July
  • Flowers abundantly within a few years of planting
  • Good cold-resistance and very fast-growing

Plant Bracken’s Brown Southern Magnolia in full sun for the best results, especially in colder areas. It grows well in most soils, favoring richer, well-drained soils. Once established it is very drought tolerant, as well as being left-alone by deer, pests and diseases. It is tolerant of salt-spray too. With its natural dense growth no trimming is needed – just plant and admire.
