Homeowner Growing & Maintenance
A long, continuous flower season helps to control plant size however, if more control is needed, Teddy Bear® Magnolia can be easily pruned to maintain a much smaller size. This wonderful Magnolia blooms best and retains a more compact size when grown in full sun.
The leaf back is reddish-brown and heavily felted Teddy Bear® Magnolia has small to medium sized leaves 2" to 4"wide by 3" to 6" long and lusterous dark green. When plants are 3-4 years old, they begin producing flowers from May until November. The original unpruned parent plant is 19 years old and only 17 feet tall and 10 feet wide with a full dense habit from the ground up.
