A popular magnolia covered in abundant cup-shaped and fragrant rosy pink flowers fading to white centers in early spring, rounded habit of growth; blooms somewhat later than other varieties, makes an excellent feature tree for the home landscape

Ornamental Features

Verbanica Saucer Magnolia is bathed in stunning fragrant rose cup-shaped flowers with white overtones held atop the branches in mid spring before the leaves. It has dark green foliage throughout the season. The large pointy leaves turn coppery-bronze in fall. The fruit is not ornamentally significant.

Landscape Attributes

Verbanica Saucer Magnolia is a multi-stemmed deciduous tree with a more or less rounded form. Its relatively coarse texture can be used to stand it apart from other landscape plants with finer foliage.

This is a relatively low maintenance tree, and should only be pruned after flowering to avoid removing any of the current season's flowers. It has no significant negative characteristics.

Verbanica Saucer Magnolia is recommended for the following landscape applications;

  • Accent
  • General Garden Use

Planting & Growing

Verbanica Saucer Magnolia will grow to be about 20 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 20 feet. It has a low canopy with a typical clearance of 3 feet from the ground, and is suitable for planting under power lines. It grows at a medium rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for 70 years or more.

This tree does best in full sun to partial shade. It requires an evenly moist well-drained soil for optimal growth, but will die in standing water. It is not particular as to soil type, but has a definite preference for acidic soils. It is somewhat tolerant of urban pollution. Consider applying a thick mulch around the root zone in winter to protect it in exposed locations or colder microclimates. This particular variety is an interspecific hybrid.
