Comments:

Centennial Star Magnolia is a great large shrub or small tree, a very prolific bloomer, and fragrant. Each flower has 25 to 35 petals, and a mature tree can have many thousands of flowers at the same time.

The buds are developed in late fall to early winter as the temperatures warm, and the fragrant flowers emerge to yield a fantastic display of spring color.

The pink tinged flowers are followed by medium green leaves that will provide nice summer shade. After the leaves drop in the fall, a very interesting branching structure is revealed. Placed in the correct area of a yard or garden, Centennial Star Magnolia can be a fantastic highlight and specimen.
