I have both an Edith Bogue and Bracken's Brown Beauty Magnolia grandiflora in the front yard on my Zone 6B Nutley NJ garden. There are no sidewalks on my block and I am using the Magnolia grandiflora as street trees.
The original Edith Bogue is in Montclair NJ , a few miles from my home and continues to do will at 92 plus years of age. You can view my report and photographs of the original Edith Bogue in the following Wiki:

I love, love, LOVE this tree!!! I've had it for about 5 years (or more) now and it is my favorite tree that I'm able to grow in this zone. I miss my crepe myrtles from Maryland (mine doesn't get big here) and this is the next best thing because it grows beautifully, is an evergreen, and has STUNNING flowers that seem to last forever! I want to plant another one of these but may try a 'Bracken Brown' as my next magnolia. One of the best things about this tree is that frost doesn't kill the flowers like it does on some other 'saucer' and 'tulip' magnolias. Did I say I LOVE this tree???? Purchased it locally from Tripp Nursery in Springfield, IL - 217.529.7289.

Gorgeous tree. We use it to screen a somewhat busy street. Everyone comments on how beautiful it is. It is about 11 years old, and over 2 stories tall. It flowers all summer, and the flowers are fragrant.

Here in Peoria, IL there is an Edith Bogue growing in a parkway between the sidewalk and the street of all places. I was shocked to see it. It was about 12-15 feet tall and wide with fully leaved branches suggesting little damage in past winters despite its harsh location. We just had lows last week around -17F and the leaves appeared healthy and could not noticeably see any burn. After seeing that I am convinced they can grow here reliably well enough that people shouldnt be too worried of planting one.

I just bought a DD Blanchard and Edith Bogue Southern Magnolia from Plant Land Garden Center in Breese, IL. Its about 40 east of St. Louis. They had quite a few mags for fair price. Good to know for us N. Illinoisans trying to find S Mags not to far away.
