Magnolia Ashei Tree in Bloom
Sorry to put up two woody plant posts in a row, but our Magnolia tree is too pretty to pass up!
Ashe magnolia is a small understory tree with the largest leaves and flowers of any North American tree. This Southern native has sweetly scented, thick waxy blooms, which are almost a foot wide! Magnolia ashei is actually Magnolia macrophylla subspecies ashei.
