Magnolia 'George Henry Kern' is a unique hybrid Magnolia, which offers the spring flowering of Magnolia stellata types with the robust, showy blooms of Magnolia liliflora. Magnolias are known for their fragrant spring blossom, and make an astoundingly beautiful shrub for any garden.
Magnolias can be slow-growing, so are excellent for patio containers as well as small gardens. Magnolia 'George Henry Kern' carries pretty, rose-pink, aromatic flowers from April to June, one of the longest flowering periods of any deciduous Magnolia. Height: 3m (10'). Spread: up to 2.5m (8.2').
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.
