Imagine stepping outside on a fine spring day and seeing what appears to be a multitude of giant bright-yellow butterflies sitting among the bare branches of your Magnolia!
The gorgeous Magnolia Butterflies (Magnolia x ‘Butterflies’) is a small flowering tree or multi-stemmed ornamental shrub. With an abundance of bright, creamy yellow, double blooms, Butterflies is aptly named because when fully open, the flowers resemble butterflies in flight. Creating quite a show for your spring yard making them nearly impossible to miss!
Your Butterfly Magnolia is one of the most desirable Magnolia trees on the market and we trust just by looking at that gorgeous bloom, you will see why! Its spring display must be seen to be believed! These lovely deciduous trees are covered in 10-16 tepals (petal-like sepals) creating tulip-like, canary-yellow blooms in early spring, before the leaves arriving on the scene.
The sweet, lemony scent is an added bonus to this spectacular display, butterflies and other pollinators come from near and far for a taste of its sweet nectar. Snip a few to bring indoors and create lovely floral bouquets, or float one as a solitary bloom in a bubble bowl.
You can choose to grow it as a single tree or let it spread into a multi-stemmed shrub. Either way, it is incredibly captivating and will draw everyone in! Providing amazing, lush shade throughout the summer with its large vivid green leaves.
Magnolia seed pods resemble exotic-looking cones. Providing interest in fall, they open to reveal bright red berries. And with their arrival, birds, squirrels and other wildlife will adore the buffet!
How to Use Magnolia Butterflies In The LandscapeIt would do well as a focal point anywhere in your yard since Butterflies loves both full sun and partial shade. Creating a gorgeous privacy hedge or backdrop for smaller shrubs. Lovely intersperse several amid other non-flowering bushes for added seasonal interest.
Excellent specimen or accent for sunny areas in the landscape where spring flowers can be appreciated. Working as both a small shade tree or large, multi-stemmed shrub for ornamental privacy screens and hedges.
The deep-green leaves are large and oval, making the tree remain attractive all summer. With an open pyramidal crown, and it rises on a single trunk to a height of 15 to 20 feet and provides wonderful shade. You’ll love the upright pyramidal form and oval canopy that creates a lovely silhouette for your landscape even when not in bloom. The amazing branching even looks lovely in winter.
It is perfect on the borders of wooded areas, or as a specimen on a lawn, and it brings great beauty early in the year when few other plants are blooming.
#ProPlantTips For CareMagnolia Butterflies are adaptable to pollution as well as being cold and heat tolerant. For Magnolia, full sun is ideal, requiring at least six hours of direct, unfiltered sunlight each day. This will give you the most flowering and best color. However, Butterflies works as an understory tree that also does well in partial sun!
Hardy in USDA growing zones 5-9, these trees are cold hardy and heat resistant. Each bud is covered in an adorable fuzzy bud scale to protect them from spring frosts.
Magnolia grows in almost any well-drained soil, preferring acidic, loamy, moist planting medium that is organically rich. Also doing well if your soil is sandy and even in good draining clay soils.
Requiring average moisture, these trees do very well in all conditions and are partly drought tolerant once they’re fully established. Mix organic material with the soil and water thoroughly. Use the “Finger Test” by sticking your finger into the soil near the roots to the second knuckle. If it’s moist, skip watering that day. If dry, a nice long drink best.
With a tolerant root system, Butterflies Magnolia doesn’t mind an underplanting of other perennials, groundcover and smaller shrubs. They’ll look lovely in a skirt of Hosta or evergreens. If pruning is necessary to shape the plant, do so right after flowering, that way you won’t miss a single bloom!
A generous layer of mulch helps retain soil moisture as well as insulate the root system from heat and chill. A mulch layer also acts as a buffer if your tree is planted directly in your lawn. The silvery-gray bark is susceptible to mower and weed-wacker damage. You can also ring your tree with shade-loving perennials to protect the trunk.
Gorgeous ornamental trees that are easy-care and reliable bloomers are always highly sought-after for their high-impact style and versatile form. Add fragrance and unusual color, and versatility, and you have yourself one amazing plant!
