Saucer Magnolia Magnoliaceae Magnolia x soulangiana Cup Magnolia, Plate Magnolia, Spread Magnolia, Magnolia Platten Description: Often encountered as a medium to large shrub, the saucer magnolia is one of the most dramatic deciduous flowering trees when in bloom. A prolific bloomer, its flowers are large and goblet shaped and cover the naked stems of the tree just before the leaves emerge. The flower buds are big and fuzzy and about 1 in (2 cm) long. Depending on the variety, the fragrant flowers vary in color from deepest purple to lightest pink to pure white. Some have pure white interiors with exteriors of purple to pink blending with white in various patterns.

Flower: Large (4 to 8 inches) and showy, light pink to nearly purple petals, appearing in April and May. Fruit: A cone-like aggregate of follicles, 2 to 3 inches long. Matures in late summer.
