A beautiful compact Magnolia. Its extremely glossy, bright green leaves with deep orange-brown fuzzy undersides and long flowering season make this a standout. Fast, upright growth. 'Kay Parris' magnolia should have a specimen spot in any sunny Carolina landscape. With its dense compact habit you can use them as a living screen or potentially sheared into a tall hedge. In areas of the Carolinas where winter ice storms are common, this cultivar has great limb structure and appears to hold up better than 'Little Gem'. It is drought tolerant once established but in dry hot areas will need some shade.
- Needs regular watering - weekly, or more often in extreme heat.
- Full Sun
- Mature Size ; Up To 20 Feet Tall and 10 Feet Wide
- Hardy in zones 6-9
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.
