Product Description

The Magnolia Tree for the North and the South

Why Southern Magnolia Trees?

Despite its name, the Southern Magnolia isn’t just a southern tree…in fact, it can thrive up north. And it’s versatile – it’s considered an ornamental tree for its iconic blooms and a privacy tree for its large stature and evergreen leaves.

But no matter how you use it, you can count on the Southern Magnolia to last. From its thick, deep green leaves that shine year-round to its steady, strong growth, the Southern Magnolia will thrive for generations, especially since it’s native to the United States. It provides an impressive amount of rich color when many other trees go dormant, offering a sweet place of refuge for birds, squirrels, and rabbits. In fact, it produces cones and small red seeds throughout winter.

And don’t forget its iconic creamy-white flowers. Adorning the tree for months, from May to as late as early fall, the Southern Magnolia’s huge, distinctive blooms are sprawling, revealing a bright white center and a sweet, unforgettable fragrance.

Even better is the fact that all of this beauty is effortless because the Southern Magnolia is cold hardy down to 10 degrees, drought tolerant, thrives in most soil types, and withstands some flooding, making it ideal for the most problematic areas.

Why is Better

Southern Magnolias sold at your local garden center or nursery often have weaker root systems, smaller blooms, and fewer branches.

But when you order your Southern Magnolia from Fast Growing Trees, you get a healthier root system and fuller branching, ready to bloom soon after it arrives at your door.

We’ve planted, grown and shipped your Southern Magnolia with meticulous care, at your convenience. Now, you reap the rewards of this iconic bloomer for years to come, all hassle-free.

If you’re looking for a big, beautiful tree that arrives healthy, ready to thrive, look no further than the Southern Magnolia Tree. Experience the iconic Southern Magnolia for yourself today!

Planting & Care

1. Planting: Choose a full sun location (6 to 8 hours of sun per day) away from cement sidewalks or driveways. The Southern Magnolia adapts to a variety of soil types but does prefer well-drained areas.

Dig your hole slightly larger than the root system of the plant, 2 to 3 times the width and just as deep as the root ball. Position the tree in the ground and hold the tree straight as you begin to backfill the hole, tamping down as you go to prevent air pockets. Finally, water to settle the soil and apply mulch to conserve moisture.

2. Watering: Water your Southern Magnolia frequently, about once or twice weekly, in the first year of growth. After that, rainfall should be enough for the tree, and you should only have to water during extended periods of drought.

3. Fertilizing: You can feed your tree with a controlled-release fertilizer formula if new growth is noticeably slow. Fertilize in the early spring and follow the application instructions.

4. Pruning: Prune your magnolia at the first sign of any dead leaves, branches or flowers in late winter, right before spring. When pruning, remove the branch down to its base. Prune the lower branches as necessary as the tree grows.

Magnolia Butterflies Tree

Ordered my Magnolia Butterflies tree when it was only a baby in 2017. Dug a hole in the ground and dropped in the dirt. Mother Nature has beautifully taken care of the rest. Southern Magnolia Southern Magnolia Review

I would like to say thank you to team at fast growing trees for the replacement of my tree. I received tree on July 5th, I was so afraid to plant it because the other one died or just could not weather the Houston Tx heat. So once it was removed from the shipping box, added so water a left her on my patio for 5 days while out of town. Planted her on Saturday July 10th. It’s been 4 days and no wilting of any leaves like my first tree. Southern Magnolia Southern Magnolia Review

Southern Magnolia

My receiving date was changed, it was supposed to arrive on Friday but it did not arrive until mid day on Monday. The tracker had it in the area but I believe the driver did not delivery it as I work from home and I usually see the deliver trucks pass at a certain time each day it. Once received i removed from the box the roots were very dry so I watered it placed it on my back yard to acclimate to the Texas heat for the day. Once the sun shade covered my back yard I dug the hole and planted the tree as instructed. My Magnolia isn't doing so well I believe it is dying I have watered it daily or ever other day, place a cover to block the powerful sun rays. It's been over a week and she isn't doing well. I will write another review in a few weeks or months if she begins a rebound. I bought the 2-3 feet. Southern Magnolia Southern Magnolia Review
