A mid to late spring flowering deciduous Magnolia with an upright habit when young, later spreading. The goblet-shaped fragrant blooms are flushed with pale pink on the outside and appear from mid spring to early summer avoiding most frosts. This Magnolia is compact and therefore one of the best available for the small garden.

  • Garden care: Plant in a sheltered spot away from strong winds. Requires minimal pruning. Remove any broken, diseased or crossing branches after flowering. The best time to plant is in April adding plenty of peat to the planting hole in a sheltered spot. Mulch in spring with manure and leaf mould especially on dry soils.
