Magnolia acuminata

Family:Magnoliaceae
Species:Magnolia acuminata (L.) L.
Common Name:cucumber tree, mountain magnolia, cucumber magnolia
Habitat:Mesic forests sometimes in deep rich and/or calcareous soils. Occasionally in dry-mesic or wet-mesic soils. It often occurs sparsely distributed and does not become a dominant tree in New York.
Associated Ecological Communities:**
Growth Habit:Tree
Duration:Perennial
Category:Vascular
Plant Notes:**
Taxonomic Notes:This species is morphological variable and numerous taxa have been named (see for example Cocker 1943 and Hardin 1954). More work is needed to determine if any of these segregate taxa should be recognized. In the mean time, we follow Hardin and Jones (1989) and Meyer (1997) in recognizing only one variable taxon. If segregate taxa are recognized at the varietal level, New York would have only var. acuminata as most of the variability occurs further to the south (Hardin 1954).
Status:Native, S5 (State Rank), G5 (Global Rank)
