The Centennial Blush Magnolia is a spectacular hardy tree that is smothered in huge, double, soft-pink blooms very early in spring. It is the hardiest of all the magnolias, thriving in zone 4 and even in protected spots in zone 3. It blooms on bare branches, as early as February, and it is the most prolific bloomer of all the star magnolias, with plants as young as two-years old showing their first blossoms. It grows vigorously into an upright, conical tree reaching 12 to 18 feet tall, and 10 or 15 feet wide. It is the perfect specimen for a lawn, or in a bed among later-flowering trees and shrubs. Plant it in open woodland gardens too, where it looks right at home. This tree can be easily grown everywhere in the country, and it is such a spectacular and delightful tree that no garden should be without one.

Note: The plant is shipped in its pot, firmly secured with several layers of clear tape, thereby avoiding any shuffling and moving during transit. The plant reaches you with minimal damage- very safe and secure. We have been shipping plants like this for several years (plant are sometimes shipped in smaller pots for safety and ease of shipping). Most plants go dormant in fall and winter and will lose most of their leaves - looking dead and dry - very normal. They will flush out in spring.
We cannot send ship some plants and some sizes to California due to restrictions placed by department of agriculture.
