One of the most popular magnolias you can grow thanks to a succession of huge, tulip-shaped pinky white, goblet-shaped flowers up to 25cm across that smother the branches of this bushy shrub or small tree in mid to late spring.
The exquisite and beautifully fragrant blooms are shown off to great perfection on the spreading bush as they appear before its dark green leaves. The foliage turns an attractive golden brown in the autumn before falling for winter dormancy.
This small, bushy tree eventually can reach 6m (20ft) by 6m (20ft) wide and can be easily pruned to keep within an allotted area. A great choice for small gardens that don't have room for larger trees.
It prefers acidic soil or pots filled with ericaceous compost.
Supplied as an established plant in a 9cm pot ready for planting.
