Description How to Grow More Info Delivery Reviews Video

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.

Flowering Months
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.
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 'George Henry Kern' in a patio container use a blend of ericaceous compost mixed with John Innes No. 3.
