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.

Thank you for your Bracken’s Brown Beauty Magnolia Tree order.

I ordered a magnolia tree one year ago and it has done great. It shipped to me unarmed. However this last order had a major branch damaged in shipping. It seemed as though it was bent into place to fit in the box. When I pulled it out it was already broken. I tried to support it once planted but the branch eventually broke. I'm sure the tree will be fine. I will continue to order from you guys. Just am fyi
