Mary’s Plant of the Week – Teddy Bear Magnolia

Posted on January, 10

Magnolias are an iconic evergreen tree in the South, and Teddy Bear is one of the smallest Southern Magnolia varieties. Their large glossy dark green leaves have fuzzy brown undersides that remind you of teddy bear fur. The exquisite 6-8 inch white flowers are beautiful, aromatic, and bloom from late spring through summer to early fall.
This magnolia has a dense cone-shaped form and grows to 15-20’ tall and 10-12’ wide, the perfect size for smaller residential yards. It’s impressive on its own as a single specimen or planted in a row to create a natural evergreen privacy screen or windbreak. Teddy Bear Magnolias love the sun, and once established, are heat and drought-tolerant.
