Magnolia stellata 'Centennial'
Star magnolia 'Centennial'
Family: Magnoliaceae

This is an oval to rounded, often multi-stemmed magnolia. It has fragrant, white (or pink) flowers in the spring and silvery gray bark during the winter. They have numerous petals, which are pink and get lighter as the flower opens. This specimen is a native of Japan. It needs full sun, moist, well drained soils. The 'Centennial' cultivar can be hard to transplant due to the fleshy root system. It grows 15 to 20 feet high. You can find this specimen in the Entrance Gardens on campus. Hardy in zone 5
