Magnolia Butterfly Yellow
The Butterflies Magnolia is the very best of the rare yellow-flowering magnolias, with the richest yellow color, and the largest flowers, with many petals. The blooms sit like tulips on the bare branches in late winter and early spring, making a striking picture of beauty. The small tree has a pyramidal crown, and it rises on a single trunk to a height of 15 to 20 feet. The deep green leaves are large, and the tree is attractive all summer. Hardy from zone 5 to zone 9, this tree can be grown in both cooler and hotter zones, and brings a beautiful splash of color to early spring, a unique addition to the range of beautiful flowering magnolia trees
