This classic, deciduous magnolia has a slow growing, compact habit that is well suited to smaller gardens. The silky buds of the Star Magnolia open to reveal exquisite, pristine-white blooms in early spring. Its lightly scented flowers are borne in profusion, covering the naked branches in a flurry of petals over several weeks. As spring progresses, Magnolia stellata becomes cloaked with a dense covering of attractive mid-green leaves. This modestly proportioned shrub makes a superb specimen plant for a sheltered border or large container. Height: 3m (10'). Spread: 4m (12').
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.
When growing Magnolia stellata in a patio container use a blend of ericaceous compost mixed with John Innes No. 3.
