Description
A most unusual magnolia that is definitely worth a second look. Magnolia acuminata 'Blue Opal' is a medium sized deciduous tree that gives a spectacular show in early summer! When the buds appear they are a wonderful blue colour which will slowly open to reveal a lovely yellow flower inside. A covering of these amazing blooms will be set off against a background of rich dark green foliage which lasts well into the autumn, making this variety one to choose! Height: 15m (49'). Spread: 8m (26').

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 height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

How to Grow
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.
More Info
Water regularly throughout the growing season. 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.
