Magnolia 'Fairy Cream'

Michelia

Hardy Shrub

  • More flower power than any other magnolia we've found!
  • Spectacular fragrant specimen plant
This lovely Magnolia bears its gently fragrant blooms along the length of its stems, at every leaf axil, giving extraordinary flower power. Compact and delicate, it makes a fabulous specimen plant, particularly in smaller gardens where it won't dominate. Magnolia 'Fairy Cream' is comparatively quick growing, producing spring blooms on relatively young plants. This stunning evergreen shrub makes a wonderful feature plant for a sheltered border or woodland garden, and can even be grown in large containers. Height: 250cm (98"). Spread: 200cm (79").

Culinary note: The young flowers, once separated, can be pickled and then used either on their own as a treat or in salads. For more details about edible flowers click here.

Plant magnolias in a sunny or semi shaded position with protection from cold winds and hard spring frosts. Magnolias prefer a rich, moist, well drained, acid to neutral soil. Incorporate plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost to improve the soil prior to planting, mixing it thoroughly and deeply. Magnolia plants establish quicker when their roots are shaded. Following planting, apply a mulch of rotted bark chips, manure or garden compost, taking care not to mound it around the stem of the plant.
Water regularly throughout the growing season until young magnolias are fully established. In spring, apply a mulch of well rotted bark chips or garden compost to the base of the plant. Magnolias require little pruning other than a trim in winter to maintain their shape and remove damaged stems or crossing stems.
