Special Attributes

Love the evergreen southern magnolias for their magnificent stature and flowers that fill the the garden with delightful, lemon-scented aroma, 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 with a width of about 10-14 feet. This makes Teddy Bear an excellent choice for those who want the beauty of a Southern Magnolia but have limited space to work with. 

In addition to its smaller size, there are other big differences between Teddy Bear Magnolia and its larger cousins. Teddy Bear is much more compact and dense with a narrower form. The lateral branches grow more upward and much stronger than others. The blooming period is much longer as well with flowering lasting May through October. Dark green oval-shaped leaves with a fuzzy bronze-brown underside. The beautiful, fragrant white flowers are 8" across! Teddy Bear Magnolia has a slower growth rate, however if planted where happy can be adjusted to a slow to moderate growth rate.




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing upright to 20 to 25 feet tall and 10-14 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) on 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, bird, wildlife, cut flower and cottage gardens. 

Spacing:  8' for solid screens;  15 feet or more for space between trees





Cultural Preferences

Teddy Bear Magnolia is very easy to grow in most an average moist but well-drained soil, preferring one 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.
