Magnolia acuminata is a huge tree from the eastern USA, even in the British climate it has reached 80 ft over here. The green flowers are probably the least impressive of any Magnolia, but the huge leaves make it an impressive foliage tree [for a park that is] and the immature fruit look like mini cucumbers, hence the tree's common name in America. You need a big garden for this tree. It is one of the parents of the beautiful Magnolia "Elizabeth"
