Plant Profile
Magnolia grandiflora ‘Edith Bogue’

Magnolia Edith Bogue

This is Magnolia grandiflora ‘Edith Bogue’ that has been growing in my garden for 3 years.

Magnolia grandiflora ‘Edith Bogue’ is a Southern Magnolia. It has evergreen leaves that look like a Rubber Tree (Ficus elastica). Infact passers-by have often asked how I can grow a Rubber Tree outside all year round. It has a pyramidal form eventually reaching 30 feet high and 15 feet wide. Edith Bogue has 8 - 10 inch wide, very fragrant white flowers throughout the summer. You should always plant Edith Bogue out of the wind.
It has proven itself hardy in my Zone 6 garden over the last three years with no protection.
