Considered one of the finest of all yellow-flowered magnolias. Abundant 4-5″ rich yellow, double flowers bloom to look spectacular in the spring garden. Blossoms are help upright like butterflies alighting on a branch. Blooms appear in late spring which help to protect them from frosts in cool-spring climates. Pollution tolerant, they make superb specimens in the urban landscape. May perform in zone 4 with winter protection.
