Did you know?
Royal Star Magnolia trees (Magnolia stellata 'Royal Star') are in the family Magnoliaceae, which was named after the french botanist Pierre Magnol (1638 - 1715). Most magnolia species have large, fuzzy flower buds covered in fine, silver hairs, which makes them easy to identify in early springtime before flowering occurs.

Pests & Diseases
Great as a specimen or accent
Plant in moist, well-drained soil in an area with full sun to part shade. Keep protected from strong winds and early frost, as the flowers and buds are susceptible to frost and wind damage. These small trees tolerate a variety of sun, soil, and pH conditions once established, but they cannot tolerate standing water.
