Magnolia 'Heaven Scent'(Large Plant)

Hardy Shrub

The ideal large shrub for a small garden, Magnolia 'Heaven Scent' is compact, and with a candelabra habit, complemented by the most fantastic spring displays of bright pink, perfumed flowers. Magnolia 'Heaven Scent' flowers in late spring, so those precious blossoms will usually miss any damaging frosts. The goblet flowers are 10cm in length, and open in rich pink, fading to soft pink, but with a constant red stripe down the centre of each bloom. The flowers are richly fragrant, with an aroma similar to honey. This Magnolia is slow growing and trouble free making it ideal for small gardens. Following the spring blossoms, the tree will produce its foliage, which is a lovely deep green colour. If you only have space for one tree in your garden, make this your choice! Height and spread: up to 10m (30').


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 to maintain their shape and remove damaged stems or crossing stems.
