What type of Magnolia trees are best for planting in USDA zone 9? I would prefer a deciduous species that doesn't get as big as the Grandiflora.

Magnolia soulangeana, or saucer magnolia, are the best choices for your gardening region. They are deciduous and generally grow about 25' tall and wide at maturity. 'Alba Superba' produces white flowers, 'Alexandrina' develops blooms that are deep purplish outside and white inside. If you're looking for a pink blooming magnolia, 'Diva' is an outstanding tree with sweet-scented blossoms in late winter or very early spring. Enjoy your new tree!
