Flowers bloom in early spring.

David Beaulieu

Star magnolia trees are early bloomers (March-April) suitable for growing in zones 4-8. Shorter than saucer magnolia trees, star magnolia trees reach a height of 15'-20', with a similar spread.

Because star magnolia trees are among the earliest flowers to greet us each spring, a special place in our hearts is reserved for them: they come to the rescue after the long winter, when our psyches most desperately crave floral color. It holds true for all of the earliest bloomers: whatever other fine qualities they may possess, plants such as star magnolia trees win us over most of all with their timeliness.
