Raise your hand if you are a fan of the HGTV show ‘Fixer Upper’? Starring Chip and Joanna Gaines, they help families in Waco, Texas find an old, fixer upper home to buy and bring back to its original glory. If you look carefully during the reveal portion of the show you will see a Magnolia tree planted in front of the new, old house. Each magnolia is a parting gift from Chip and Joanna and a nod to their company Magnolia Homes.
We may live in Seattle but we are just as ga-ga over magnolia trees as Joanna. The team here at Squak Mt. is excited to offer a new star Magnolia variety to you ‘Centennial Blush’.
This stunning spring blooming plant features pink buds that open to pale pink, star shaped flowers that release a wonderful fragrance into the air. And what a bloomer this magnolia is! The entire tree is covered with these lovely blooms that will continue all spring. As the flowers fade enjoy the attractive, medium green foliage throughout the summer. As autumn creeps across the threshold the foliage will take on a bronze-yellow hue. Growing to be 12-18’ tall and 10-15’ wide this lovely magnolia can either be treated as large shrub or tree. Drop by Squak Mt. Nursery soon to select a gorgeous magnolia for a sunny location in your garden.
