This DD Blanchard magnolia tree features incredible—and almost unbelievable—huge white flower blossoms with an irresistible aroma!
The D.D. Blanchard Magnolia is a distinguished member of the magnolia grandiflora cultivars due to its ability to maintain a straight central trunk growth habit. This allows it to be grown full into the ground or be pruned into tree form with a visible trunk.
The D.D. Blanchard will maintain an upright pyramidal-oval form. It is an evergreen tree with leathery, textured oblong leaves that feature a glossy, dark green appearance on top with a rusty-brown underside. This gives it a two tone appearance from further away that is simply remarkable.
In the spring and occasionally throughout summer, D.D. Blanchard Magnolia Tree produces large fragrant creamy white blooms. The cup shaped flowers give way to cone like fruiting clusters with red seeds.
The dark green leaves of this flowering tree will stay green all year long. Magnolia grandiflora tree makes an excellent choice to plant as solitary specimens, tall screens or framing accents. You can even plant it to protect you from the wind! It has excellent privacy features.
This evergreen magnolia tree prefers full sun to grow to its fullest potential. It is only cold hardy to USDA zones 7-9 and exhibits true southern magnolia qualities of staying in a pyramidal form.
DD Blanchard Magnolia Size
The DD Blanchard Magnolia growth rate is fast-growing and can grow up to 50 to 60 feet tall at maturity. The Magnolia Grandiflora growth rate per year is up 1 to 2 feet per year. It is more commonly seen at around 30 feet tall in some landscapes that prohibit it from reaching full maturity. It makes an excellent shade tree for many landscapes!
The Blanchard tree needs thoroughly watered the first year of planting to establish a strong root system. When mature, the large native tree will have extensive roots that span the width of the tree or more.

I ordered a 6ft Magnolia tree and received a tree that was maybe 3ft. It arrived looking nothing like the picture and I wasn’t to pleased with the look or size. Only time will tell if this tree will mature and look like the picture.

We appreciate you sharing your experience with our Dd Blanchard Magnolia Tree with us. Happy to hear it's going well.
We were very dissatisfied with our latest order. We ordered a Brackens Brown Beauty magnolia tree about a month prior and were very satisfied with that order. The tree seemed to be full and of good quality. So we decided to place another order. We ordered 2 trees (DD Blanchard magnolia and a Thuja Green Giant). They were both about the same size and we paid shipping on each tree. We assumed they would be shipped in separate boxes, but when they arrived, the trees were both in 1 box. They were smashed against one another when we opened up the box. The Green Giant seemed to be in fine condition. However, the DD Blanchard was disappointing. It was not as full and overall not as good of quality. We have pictures of the Brackens Brown Beauty versus the DD Blanchard and you can tell a difference between the quality. We were very disappointed and will not be placing another order in the future.
