Magnolia 'Honey Flower'
Magnolia acuminata var. subcordata 'Miss Honeybee' x Magnolia 'Elizabeth'
A cross made by Dr. August Kehr (USA in 1992), cultivated and selected by Philippe de Spoelberch at the Arboretum. This small tree has a regular crown. The deep yellow color of the flower resembles that of Magnolia 'Honey Liz', a plant grown from the same cross. The flowers are rather small (6.5 cm long and 2.3 cm wide) but the tree is very floriferous which makes it a spectacular view. The flowers are quite resistant to spring frosts.
