Yellow Cucumber Tree

Yellow Cucumber TreeThe Yellow Cucumber Tree has been cultivated in gardens for over a century. It has bright yellow blossoms, and dark, almost evergreen leaves. In the wilds of central Alabama and the Blue Ridge of South Carolina has been found the yellowflowered prototype of this garden form. It is named for its broad, heart-shaped leaves, var. cordata, of Magnolia acuminata. In cultivation the variety has been considerably modified.
