Lustrous, leathery foliage is rich, dark green above and cinnamon brown underneath. Large, 5 to 6 inch creamy white flowers are exotically fragrant. A hardier magnolia that transplants well and does not lose as many leaves as other varieties, and exhibits better cold tolerance than others. Evergreen.

Provide deep, nutrient rich, well-drained soil. Water deeply, regularly during first few growing seasons to establish an extensive root system. Once established, reduce watering frequency; best with regular moisture, but will tolerate brief periods of drought. Feed in early spring before new growth emerges.
