Bracken’s Brown Beauty Magnolia is grown for its large, extremely glossy, dark green leaves and huge white flowers. The leaves have a velvety brown underside and are evergreen. The flowers appear intermittently throughout the summer and are followed by interesting cone-like fruits.
This tree can grow in full sun to part shade. It needs consistent watering in well-drained soils. It should be protected from drying winter winds. It works well as an accent tree or lawn tree.
