Judy Zuk Magnolia Tree


Judy Zuk. It is an excellent yellow deciduous magnolia with an upright and pyramidal shape. Magnificent tulip-like magnolia blooms appear in early spring strongly yellow, but with hints of orange and pink. In the spring, loads of blooms precede leaves, emerging from large buds with a creamy yellow color that stays strong through the life of the bloom. As the blooms fall from the tree in a shower of pedals, the leaves begin to emerge. For the yard it makes an amazing specimen tree coming in at around 20 to 25 ft. tall. in about 10 years, and keeps a slender pyramidal profile getting only 8-10 ft. wide. These trees are fairly easy to care for, they require little pruning and will do well in most soils, but like most trees thrive in well-drained soil rich in organic matter. For lighting they do well in anything from full sun to part shade.
