Description

A majestic and unmistakable evergreen magnolia, very different from the spring-flowering varieties. Magnolia grandiflora bears huge, leathery, dark glossy leaves with velvety, rusty-brown undersides. The foliage alone is a stunning feature of this impressive tree and gives year-round interest. This slow-growing Magnolia matures into a very large, rounded tree that can be grown as a free-standing specimen or trained against a warm, sunny wall where it will benefit from the residual heat. In late summer and autumn, it wows with huge, bowl-shaped flowers up to 25cm across. The thick, creamy petals open into opulent blooms with a fabulous perfume of honey and lemon, their sculpted form perfectly silhouetted against a background of dark green foliage. The distinctive seedheads that follow the flowers offer an additional season of interest. Unusually, this magnolia tolerates more alkaline, chalky soils than other varieties. Height: Over 12m (39ft). Spread: Over 8m (26ft).

How to Grow

Plant in a sunny position that recieves a minimum of 4-6 hours of sunshine per day and is sheltered from cold winds and hard spring frosts. Magnolia grandiflora grows well when trained against a warm, sheltered wall. Plants in unsuitable, exposed positions will suffer winter foliar damage. Suitable for all soils, from acid to alkaline, that are rich, moist and well-drained. 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 in a patio container use a blend of ericaceous compost mixed with John Innes No. 3.

More Info

Water regularly throughout the growing season until fully established. In spring, apply a mulch of well rotted bark chips or garden compost to the base of the plant. Fertilise once a year in the spring with a slow release tree and shrub fertiliser.

Protect from cold winds and hard frosts which can cause foliar damage.

Plants in pots will be at increased risk of the root ball becoming completely frozen and should be moved into a sheltered location, conservatory or cool greenhouse over winter.

Tolerates pruning well. The best time to prune is after blooming. Remove old or diseased wood and trim to shape.
