Positive OldLineState On Sep 26, 2014, OldLineState from White Hall, MD wrote:

I have had this tree growing in my Northern Maryland yard for years. It is a very interesting looking tree due to its large leaves and trunking patterns. It is also rather fast growing. I would recommend it for anyone who is into magnolias and lives in a temperate or subtropical area.

Neutral Terry On Jan 25, 2002, Terry from Murfreesboro, TN (Zone 7a) wrote:

A fast growing tree, best situated to a moist woodland setting (m. tripetala does not tolerate drought conditions.) The flowers are intensely fragrant, but may be unpleasant up close. Diamond-shaped leaves are clustered near the branch tips, resembling an umbrella (hence the common name.)

Easy to grow, but not among the more popular species of Magnolia. The leaves turn a rich brown in fall.
