Description
With its upright, bushy habit, Magnolia liliiflora 'Nigra' is a compact variety that is well suited to smaller gardens. Flowering from late spring, the narrow, tulip-shaped flowers are deep reddish-purple with paler pink interiors. The deciduous, dark green foliage makes a handsome backdrop for its dramatic blooms, which continue sporadically right through to autumn. Magnolia liliiflora 'Nigra' makes a lovely specimen shrub for woodland edges, cottage gardens and low maintenance planting schemes. This impressive Magnolia has been awarded a coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit. Height: 4m (13’). Spread: 2.5m (8’).

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 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.
