Royal Star Magnolia is a deciduous magnolia with unique, double-petaled blooms that appear in the spring. The large white blossoms are followed by dark green leaves. It generally grows as an upright, multi-stemmed tree or large shrub.
This tree prefers moist, well-drained soil and can grow in full sun to part shade. It also tolerates clay soil. It performs better if protected from strong winds. It works well as a small accent or understory tree.
