The Bracken Brown Beauty has the widest hardiness range given to any Magnolia grandiflora cultivar being able to handle -20°F, it has more durability than other Magnolias as it can handle a wider variance of soil conditions and water levels than any other Magnolia grandiflora cultivar. It has a compact pyramidal-oval growth habit. The Bracken Brown Beauty has leathery textured 5 to 8 inch oblong leaves that appear glossy, dark green on top and the underside is covered with a fine cinnamon brown fuzz. In the spring and sporadically throughout the summer the Bracken Brown Beauty produces large fragrant creamy white saucer shaped flowers that are 8 inches wide. Great for use as a privacy screen or windbreak, an accent plant, for lining driveways, or as a specimen tree.
