My Beautiful Saucer Magnolia Tree in IL

April 19, 2010

This Saucer Magnolia is my favorite tree of the Spring.  It has been enjoying my yard for the past 3 years and has bloomed every year since I planted it.  It is super fast growing, and has never had any frost damage or negative effects from our harsh winters here in Illinois – zone 5.   Just wanted to share the pretty flowers before they fall off for the summer, at which time it fills up with big green leaves.  If you are able to plant one of these, and are in the correct zones, I highly recommend doing so soon!
