Special Attributes

'D.D. Blanchard' is a magnificent evergreen Southern Magnolia with large dark green leaves and rusty undersides on an upright, pyramidal form. It has the ability to maintain a straight central trunk that allows it to be grown full to the ground or be pruned into tree form with a visible trunk. All grown up D. D. Blanchard can reach a height of up to 75 feet tall and 30 feet wide but is usually seen at 50 feet or lower at maturity. Very large and highly fragrant cup-shaped flowers of 8 inches in diameter will fill the garden with lemony-sweet aroma during summer.

If you don't have room for a large grow such as 'D. D. Blanchard' check out its smaller, half-sized cousins the 'Little Gem' Magnolia or 'Teddy Bear' Magnolia.



Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing in an upright pyramidal form 50 feet or more in height and 20 to 30 feet wide, the D. D. Blanchard Magnolia is ideal for use as a focal point specimen, in groupings, or in tall privacy screen plantings. Also useful to frame the corners of tall homes and other buildings. A fine addition to fragrance gardens, white theme gardens, bird and wildlife gardens, and cut flower and cottage gardens. 

Spacing:  15 feet apart for privacy screens;  35 feet or more apart for space between trees




Cultural Preferences

D. D. Blanchard Magnolia is very easy to grow in a moist but well-drained soil of average or better fertility, preferring one that is rich in organic matter. Grows well in full sun or part shade. At least 4 hours of direct sunlight or all-day filtered sun is suggested.
