Magnolia, Brackens Brown Beauty



Description: Brackens Brown Beauty adds beauty to any site you choose. Its silk-like flowers are accentuated by a velvet white interior. Abundant and long lasting, the large, majestic flowers bloom in late April and grace the Brown Beauty through the end of May. The leaves are green, compact, and leather-like. This magnolia can withstand winter's bite, tolerating frigid temperatures as cold as -20F. With the right soil and enough moisture, it adapts easily to hot temperatures and full sun.
