A neat conical deciduous magnolia with dark green foliage that emerges with a distinct bronze hue. The large fragrant primrose yellow blooms are cup-shaped and appear in mid to late spring both before and while the new leaves are emerging. A lovely magnolia for a small garden where it looks super as either a specimen plant or incorporated into a large mixed border.

  • Garden care: It requires minimal pruning. Simply remove any broken, diseased or crossing branches after flowering. Before planting prepare the area well and dig in lots of composted organic matter. Mulch in spring with manure and leaf mould especially on dry soils.
