A wonderful Magnolia that produces heavily scented flowers in early summer. Each cream-coloured cup-shaped flower has a prominent boss of pinkish-red stamens at its heart and is encased in three pale pink outer petals. It has a naturally shrubby and spreading habit but it can be trained from a young specimen to become more tree-like.

Garden Care: Requires minimal pruning. Remove any broken, diseased or crossing branches in midsummer.When planting, add plenty of peat to the planting hole and mulch each spring with manure and leaf mould - especially on drier soils.
