  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: April to May

    One of the most popular magnolias, with large, dark green leaves that start to appear in mid spring, at about the same time as the huge pure white, goblet-shaped flowers, which are flushed purple-pink at the base. This is an excellent magnolia for smaller gardens, as it remains a shapely shrub for many years, and even when it is mature, is a manageable small tree.

  • Garden care: Requires minimal pruning. Remove any broken, diseased or crossing branches in midsummer. The best time to plant is in April, adding plenty of peat to the planting hole, in a sheltered spot. Mulch in spring with manure and leafmould, especially on dry soils.
