Magnolia stellata (Large Plant)

Star Magnolia

Hardy Shrub

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: 250cm (98"). Spread: 400cm (157").

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. When growing magnolia Sunrise in a patio container use a blend of ericaceous compost mixed with John Innes No. 3.
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.
