Everything about the Yellow Bird Magnolia Tree is lovely, including the dependable flowers. Bright yellow flowers measure 3.5 inches and last for several weeks. The Magnolia acuminata 'Yellow Bird' blooms later than other Magnolia cultivars, and the flowers emerge with the foliage. This bloom schedule reduces the risk of a late frost damaging the buds or flowers. Green, elliptical foliage complements the flowers and provides consistent color throughout the summer. The foliage turns golden brown in the fall.

Use this shrub to create a border or define different areas of a yard. The sunny yellow flowers make this Magnolia an excellent specimen tree. This impressively large Magnolia can create seasonal privacy in a backyard or pool area. Plant it along a driveway or property line to establish a boundary while adding visual interest. Grow the Yellow Bird Magnolia Tree in zones 5 through 9.

Yellow Bird Magnolia Tree Care

Plant the Yellow Bird Magnolia Tree in full sun. Amend the soil to increase the organic content. The soil should be moist, well-drained, and acidic to neutral. Magnolia trees like damp soil but languish in soggy conditions. Spread a layer of mulch to retain moisture and suppress weeds. Fertilize in early spring before new growth appears.

Prune the plant to remove crossed branches and overgrowth or maintain its size after the flowers fade in summer. When pruning, the plant should still have leaves.

Yellow Bird Magnolia Tree Spacing

The Yellow Bird Magnolia Tree stands 40 feet tall and 25 feet wide. Space shrubs 15 feet from buildings and away from overhead obstructions like utility lines.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
