In early spring bare stems are smothered in blush pink feathery flowers which open from rose pink buds. The petals are narrow, a little like ‘Stellata’ but with a beautiful pink tinge to them and an even more wonderful fragrance. What’s more, blooms are much more resistant to late frosts than other magnolias.
Mid green leaves appear after the flowers, creating a beautiful ornamental tree that will become a feature in your garden all year long. Ideal in beds and borders and perfect for creating a feature in a decorative pot on a patio.
Fully deserving its coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit, you can be sure that this is a proven garden performer, guaranteed to be suitable for UK gardeners at every level of experience. You can therefore plant this in the garden with confidence, for stunning displays for many years to come.
Easy to care for, it needs little pruning except a light trim to keep shape. It likes a sunny spot but isn’t too fussy, tolerating most soils and, being fully winter hardy, you needn’t worry about it over the winter.
