'Elizabeth' Magnolia was bred by Brooklyn Botanic Garden in Ossining, NY.
I love yellow-flowering magnolias. The cover of a Garden Design Magazine features one and it makes my heart skip a beat.
The Brooklyn Botanic Garden introduced the yellow-flowering magnolia to the world. BBG launched the breeding program in 1953 at its R&D facility, the Kitchawan Research Center, in Ossining, New York (the town next door to me).
