Looking for an impressive, hardy tree for your garden or park? Look no further than Magnolia acuminata, also known as the Cucumber tree, Cucumber magnolia, or Blue magnolia. One of the largest and most cold-hardy magnolias, it is native to the northeastern United States and southern Ontario, Canada. Its open, spreading habit and yellow-green flowers in late spring make it an attractive addition to any landscape. The leaves turn a beautiful brownish hue in the fall, and the fruit is a pink or reddish color, vaguely reminiscent of a cucumber. This deciduous tree grows at a medium rate, reaching up to 60 ft tall and preferring moist, well-drained soil. Although not suitable for street planting, it is an excellent shade tree for parks and gardens, and its fleshy root system can be transplanted by a professional in early spring. Magnolia acuminata is even used in hybridizing new varieties, making it a versatile and valuable addition to any collection.
