 Umbrella Magnolia
Umbrella Magnolia's large leaves
This tree has deep green leaves that can grow up to 24inches. They are arranged in circles around the branch. The bark is smooth gray. The tree gives the appearance of an umbrella, thus the name. This tree has  an incredible white flower that blooms in May.
