Magnolia x brooklynensis Black Beauty (D. Ledvina)

Magnolia x brooklynensis 'Black Beauty'

Magnolia

'Black Beauty' Magnolia (#204) originates from Brooklyn Botanic Garden's wonderful breeding program.  The cross from which this beauty originated is M. acuminata x M. liliiflora, and the flower is extremely dark purple and an upright tulip shape.  Magnolia x brooklynensis 'Black Beauty' is a late spring bloomer, thereby avoiding most frosts.  The flowers are particularly striking as they open, because the insides of the tepals are white, making a showy contrast to the dark purple exteriors.
