About the D.D. Blanchard Magnolia Tree

The D.D. Blanchard Magnolia (Magnolia grandiflora ‘D.D. Blanchard’) is a magnificent broadleaf evergreen tree that exudes Southern charm. With its unique dark green leaves and rusty brown undersides, this tree stands out as a stunning specimen in any landscape. It boasts a tight, upright pyramidal growth habit, reaching a mature height of 40-50 feet with a canopy spread of 25-35 feet, making it perfect for open areas and lawns.

One of the most striking features of the D.D. Blanchard Magnolia is its large, cup-shaped flowers that bloom in late spring and continue to grace the tree with sparse flowering throughout the summer. The creamy white blossoms, up to 8 inches in width, emit a captivating lemony scent, filling the air with a delightful fragrance. In late summer or early fall, the flowers give way to eye-catching cone-like spheres containing rose-colored seeds, adding an extra touch of elegance to the tree’s appearance.

This Magnolia tree retains its glossy dark green leaves year-round, ensuring a beautiful display even during colder months. Its impressive foliage makes it a fantastic choice for creating floral arrangements, adding a touch of sophistication to any room.

How to Grow the D.D. Blanchard Magnolia Tree

The Blanchard Magnolia tree thrives in full sun to partial shade, making it adaptable to various environments, but it does best when grown in moist, organically rich, and well-drained loamy soil. Avoid overwatering, as the tree is intolerant of waterlogged conditions.

It is relatively low-maintenance and shows good tolerance to urban pollutants. While the tree can be pruned to create a visible trunk, avoid excessive pruning for size control, as it may compromise the tree’s natural form and balance. This ornamental tree is a lovely specimen tree for any landscape. Additionally, it can be used as an evergreen screen when planted in groups.

You’ll enjoy the benefits of this southern magnolia with no serious insect or disease problems, making it a relatively hassle-free addition to your landscape.
