Tree 6



“Elizabeth”, is a variety of Magnolia brooklynensis and a deciduous flowering tree. When mature it should reach about 20~30ft and bear fragrant yellow flowers in Spring.

It is a cross between the Cucumber tree

(M. acuminata) and Yulan magnolia (M. denudata).

Older branches may split to reveal the orange inner bark - an attractive feature in winter.
