Special Attributes

Love the evergreen Southern Magnolias but don't have the room for a 50 feet tree? Unlike its larger cousins, 'Teddy Bear' is the dwarf in the family; maturing to a height of only 20-25 feet and a width of about 10-14 feet, which makes it a good fit when there's limited space to work with. 

There are several other differences between Teddy Bear Magnolia and its larger cousins. Teddy Bear is much more compact and dense than other Southern Magnolia varieties. Its upright narrower form is densely covered with thicker and darker green oval-shaped leaves that are glossy on top with fuzzy orange-bronze undersides. The lateral branches grow more upward and much stronger than other varieties and the blooming period is much longer; flowering May through October. The beautiful and fragrant white flowers are 8 inches across and fill the the garden with the delightful, lemon-scented aroma we love from southern magnolias. A truly magnificent specimen in the landscape!




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing 20 to 25 feet tall and 10 to 14 feet wide, Teddy Bear Magnolia is ideal for use as a specimen, in groupings, in evergreen privacy screen plantings, or as a corner plant or espalier (trained to grow flat against a window) in home foundation plantings. Can also be grown in large pots, planters and other containers of 18 inches or more in rim diameter. A fine addition to fragrance gardens, white theme gardens, bird, wildlife, cut flower and cottage gardens. 

Suggested Spacing:  7 to 8 feet apart for privacy screens; 16 feet or more apart for space between trees





Cultural Preferences

Teddy Bear Magnolia is very easy to grow in most any moist but well-drained soil of average fertility, preferring a soil that is rich in organic matter. It grows well in full sun or part shade. At least 4 hours of direct sunlight or all-day filtered sun is suggested.
