First Sign Of Spring

Butterfly Magnolia Trees let you know that spring has officially arrived by covering themselves with bright yellow blossoms. Each flower is a vibrant shade of canary yellow, and they glow in the landscape like miniature orbs of sunlight, erasing winter drear from your garden 

The bright blossoms get their butterfly name because each flower petal points upwards, giving them the look of butterfly wings. Each flower looks like an elegant butterfly perching on top of the branches, inviting onlookers to marvel at their beauty.

While most magnolia blossoms are white or pink, the Butterfly Magnolia puts a modern twist on this traditional spring flower by being bright yellow. The Butterfly Magnolia Tree is a rare and unique Magnolia variety that your friends and neighbors have most likely never seen before.

Don’t wait for blooms! Butterfly Magnolias bloom in the early spring, often before they grow leaves. While your neighbor’s yards still look bleak from winter, yours will be sporting glowing spring flowers.

Butterfly Magnolias arouse multiple senses because not only are their blooms enchanting, they are also fragrant. They allow a rich, flowery perfume to fill the landscape with an unforgettable sweet scent.

With a thick, rounded canopy and by only growing to about 15 to 20 feet tall, butterfly magnolias are an excellent choice for ornament flowering trees in compact areas. They fit perfectly in tight spaces near structures like sidewalks, homes and driveways.

Grow Butterfly Magnolia Trees almost anywhere in the country. They are recommended for growing zones 4 through 9, meaning they will survive the harsh winter conditions up north and the heat and droughts in the South.

Butterfly Magnolias are low maintenance trees with a high resistance to pests, and diseases. By planting Butterfly Magnolias you will have tons of hands free flowers every spring.

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Magnolia 'Butterflies' Tree



Step 1: Dig Your Hole


Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Magnolia 'Butterflies' Tree.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant


Next, separate the roots of your Magnolia 'Butterflies' Tree gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole


As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Magnolia 'Butterflies' Tree again after the transplant is complete.
