Growing the Kay Parris Magnolia

Southern Magnolia trees are relatively fast-growing and pest-free. This Magnolia tree is drought tolerant once established but in dry hot areas, they will need some shade. The Kay Parris Magnolia grows best in organically rich, moist, preferably neutral to acid, well-drained soils. It is a low-maintenance evergreen tree that does not require routine pruning.
