A stunning deciduous magnolia with a compact habit and dark purple-red flowers which appear from an earlier age than most magnolias. The goblet-shaped blooms are produced from early summer and then intermittently into autumn. A lovely shrub for a sunny or partially shaded spot out of strong winds.

  • Garden care: 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
