Magnolia 'Sunsation'

Attention cold climate gardeners: This yellow Magnolia from August Kerr (hybrid of M. 'Woodsman' and 'Elizabeth') blooms the very end of April into mid May, so there is less danger from being frostbitten. Lovely 6-7" lemon yellow blossoms flushed with pink are seductive. It will develop a pyramidal shape and become 25-30' tall. 2-3' plants. Limited Supply for spring....more will be available for late summer planting.
