Umbrella Magnolia - side view
In autumn the fruit-bearing cones and fruits of these magnolias turn a brilliant pink to attract birds. Frasier Magnolia trees also have huge leaves, the difference being that the bases have 2 lobes ("ears"); Umbrella Magnolias don't have the lobes. I think of the TV character "Frasier" having ears to help me remember the difference! It may be silly, but it helps!
