About Your Bracken's Brown Beauty Magnolia Tree

Brackens Brown Beautys Magnolia is a compact pyramidal tree that features beautiful, large white fragrant flowers that make it an exceptional choice as an accent tree for your garden. Brackens Brown Beauty Magnolia is a significant cultivar with extensive winter hardiness. It is a compact magnolia that will typically grow to be 35 to 50 feet tall with a dense, narrow oval crown. This plant produces large fragrant, cup-shaped, white flowers that appear in late spring with sparse flowering throughout the summer. Its evergreen leaves are glossy dark green above and rusty-brown beneath, lending a bi-color appearance to the foliage. The flowers will give way to spherical fruiting clusters that mature in late summer and release red coated seeds. The Bracken’s Brown Beauty thrives in full sunlight to partial shade and can tolerate very wet areas and cold winters.

How to Care for Bracken's Brown Beauty Magnolia Tree

We suggest when planting your newly purchased Brackens Brown Beauty Magnolia plants that you dig a hole twice as wide as the root system but not deeper. Depending on the quality of your existing soil you may need to add a locally sourced compost or topsoil to the back-fill soil. We do not recommend using straight topsoil or compost as a back-fill soil because more times than not these products will retain entirely to much moisture and will cause the root system to rot. Adding compost or topsoil will help the young feeder roots of Brackens Brown Beauty Magnolia to spread through the loose, nutrient rich soil, much easier than if you used solely the existing soil which more times than not will be hard and compacted. The most common cause of plant death after transplanting is planting the new plant to deep. That is why we do not recommend planting in a hole any deeper than the soil line of the plant in the pot. A good rule is that you should still be able to see the soil the plant was grown in after back-filling the hole. Bio-tone starter fertilizer is a great starter fertilizer that provides plants with mycorrhizae fungus. It is a naturally occurring beneficial fungus that colonizes on the new growing roots of plants. It creates a barrier between the roots of the plant and fungus and pathogens that can cause root rot. We love this product and use it on all plants we install in our own gardens. Bio-tone is a gardeners best friend and can help guarantee your success.
