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.
