#011 Big Leaf Magnolia
This Bigleaf Magnolia was planted along with many native plants on this property for its rarity. It was specially nurtured from a seedling by Colin S. Shaw. It was planted shortly after the home was built in 1996. Bigleaf Magnolias are rare trees to find in landscapes as only grow in select river valleys in the southeast and are rarely used in landscaping. They are particularly rare in the Charlotte area making this tree and its sister tree very special and we’re thrilled to be able to include them in our program.
