Cucumber tree is a massive shade tree that bears chartreuse, slightly fragrant flowers in the summertime. This native of the central eastern United States boasts large semi-glossy leaves and fruits that resemble small cucumbers. With time this tree spreads massive branches out from its trunk, making it only appropriate for the largest of landscapes or lawns.

Cucumber tree should be given a full sun exposure to develop its best form and strength. Provide a moist, well draining soil, from acidic...

(Ann Magnolia, Magnolia)

Ann magnolia is a slow-growing large shrub or small tree that displays goblet-shaped deep red-purple or violet in early spring. It is part of The Girls Series (Little Girl Series) of magnolias that were the result of hybridization at the United States National Arboretum. They are all known for their beautiful array of fragrant flowers. They bloom later than star and saucer magnolias and therefore their buds are not likely to be harmed by untimely spring frosts. Occasionally a few repeat flowers open...

(Chinese Willowleaf Magnolia, Hope of Spring Magnolia, Magnolia)

Sweetly fragrant flowers adorn the branches of the Chinese willowleaf magnolia in early spring, followed by comparatively narrower oval leaves. In its native China, this tree's common name is "hope of spring." Often growing from multiple thin trunks, this deciduous magnolia attains an oval silhouette when mature. It was first introduced into North American landscapes in the late 1970s.

Branch tips display long, upright flower buds with a fuzzy surface and tan color--almost like massive pussy...

(Magnolia)

Numerous pale yellow flowers adorn the bare branches of 'Butterflies' magnolia each spring. The delicate cupped blooms hold clusters of red stamens in their centers for added interest.

This vigorous hybrid of the Yulan magnolia (Magnolia denudata) and cucumber magnolia (Magnolia acuminata) is pyamidal when young but becomes much broader with age. It has excellent cold hardiness and is especially lovely when it flowers in midspring just before its broad, slightly hairy green...
