Magnolia stellata (Large Plant)

Star Magnolia

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'). More info

Winter Jasmine

Canary yellow blooms smother the bare stems of Jasmine nudiflorum from February onwards - a sure sign that spring is on its way.
