Magnolia Big Dude (Light Pink)
A large, multistemmed tree with fragrant large cup-shaped reddish purple flowers and white fading to rose-pink on the inside of the 9-12 petals.
As the flowers enlarge, they nod over to the horizontal and become rather floppy. The clone is highly regarded for its hardiness: it flowered after a winter where temperatures fell to -34 degrees.
