The Bracken Brown Magnolia tree’s compact pyramidal form features beautiful, large pure white flowers that make it an exceptional choice as an accent tree for your landscape.

The Bracken’s Brown Beauty Magnolia tree is a significant broadleaf evergreen magnolia cultivar with extensive winter hardiness. This plant produces large fragrant, cup-shaped, creamy white flowers that appear in late spring with sparse flowering throughout the summer.

Its glossy dark green leaves are green on top and rusty-brown on the undersides, lending a bi-color appearance to the foliage. The Bracken magnolia tree flowers will give way to spherical fruiting cone clusters that mature in the late summer growing season. At full maturity, it releases coated red seeds on slender threads perfect for birds to munch on.


The Magnolia Grandiflora Bracken’s Brown Beauty tree thrives in full sun to partial sun and partial shade. It prefers rich well-drained soil but can tolerate very wet areas or drought. Slightly acidic soil is best but not required. Our most cold-hardy magnolia tree thrives in most of the United States USDA zones 5-9. The cold hardiness range is perfect for areas with colder winters!

This large native tree can get up to 30-40 feet tall and up to 25 feet wide at full maturity. The Brackens Brown Magnolia growth rate is up to 1-2 feet per year making it a very fast-growing tree and perfect if you are looking for height fast. Bracken’s Magnolia has an upright growth habit with a tall central leader.

Bracken’s Brown Beauty Magnolia Pruning

You may prune your magnolia tree when needed in early spring to shape it to the desired size. Bracken’s Brown Beauty Magnolia fertilizer will benefit the tree’s growth and health yearly.

This fragrant white flowering tree grows in all types of climates making it one of our favorite southern magnolias and favorite shade trees.

Have the tree shipped directly to your home in our secure packaging. The root systems are well established; we do not ship bare root.

Beautiful and thriving!

We ordered six of the Little gem magnolia trees. We have had them in the ground now for about 4 weeks and they are absolutely thriving! This company is amazing. Their packing and shipping process is phenomenal, and these trees arrived so beautiful and healthy and full of leaves. This is a true quality company to purchase from. They ARE NOT another internet scammer! I consider myself an easy person to please, but very difficult to impress. I am both pleased and impressed with this company and their products, and cannot wait to use them again to order more products! Go ahead and make your purchase, you will not be disappointed!

I love the tree

First off, the tree arrived with the box smashed in the middle. When I opened the box I thought that I would see a few broken branches, but the tree itself was fine. Then I saw the pot, it was smashed with about ⅓ of the dirt dumped out of the pot and scattered inside the box. I was worried that the tree would suffer and go into shock. The box was also shorter than the tree so the top of the tree was bent down or curved over when I pulled it out of the box. But the tree was a very healthy tree. It did not go into shock. I had a few leaves fall off but that was it. It's not Perfect Plants fault that someone crushed the box and smashed the pot, that blame goes to UPS or FedEx. But shoving a 6' tree into a 5' box is. Which is why a 4 star review instead of a 5 star. And also considering it went from Florida all the way to Utah, I'm kinda surprised it wasn't damaged more. The tree is a beautiful tree, overall and I would not hesitate to buy more from Perfect plants. Pete T.

We ordered a magnolia tree and it far exceeds our expectations.. it arrived very full, rich in color, totally healthy! It seems to be thriving, we're watering it 1-2 times a day to establish the roots (Texas is HOT) it's been planted for a few weeks now and all of the leaves are still looking fabulous. I'm glad I found this company because I couldn't find exactly what I was looking for after trying multiple local nurseries..
