It is one of the darkest flowering of all the magnolias and it is quite simply gorgeous. Use it as a feature plant in a spring garden and underplant with an array of spring-flowering bulbs for a jaw-dropping display.

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