Native to Japan, Star Magnolias (Magnolia stellata) are slow growing deciduous trees that range between 15 to 20 feet in height. It is a flowering tree that produces showy fragrant white flowers. These flowers are three to four inches in diameter and bloom every spring. The tree does the best in the full sun, which produces the best flowers. They bloom best in full sun with partial shade and in acidic, moist, clay soils and it is under these conditions that the spring season brings large, bold white beautiful flowers. This particular Star Magnolia tree, located next to Pembroke West, was planted as the class tree of the Class of 1968.
