Answer: Black Tulip magnolia has burgundy flowers but there is a lighter color evident when the flowers are unfolding. If you look at the Monrovia online catalog, you'll see the paler color. Why not wait until the flower is mature and then take it back to the nursery to compare it with other Black Tulip magnolias? This would clear up the confusion and you'll know for sure whether or not the flowers on your tree match the others. Best wishes with your new tree!
