SKU: 12201265


Family Magnoliaceae
Originating from S.E. USA

A compact and upright evergreen Magnolia. This dwarf variety, slow growing and maturing at only a quarter of the size of the species, is relatively tender and requires the protection of a warm, sheltered wall. Not only is it attractive for its superb dark green glossy, leathery leaves with a rusty coloured felt underside but it is one of the most prolific flowerers of all the grandifloras, producing masses of large, white, spicy lemon scented water-lily like flowers through summer and into autumn. An ideal magnolia for small, sheltered gardens.
Grow in moist but well-drained soil in sun or shade. Will tolerate alkaline soils.

Height and spread after 4 – 5 years 2m x 1.5m
Semi mature height and spread after 8 – 10 years if not pruned 4m x 3m
Potential mature size after 15 – 20 years 8m x 5m
