A slow growing Magnolia for containers or for a feature point in the garden.
Magnolia stellata, also known, as the Star Magnolia because of its bright white many petalled flowers is a truly lovely plant. Its greyish stems grow almost vertically when young becoming more horizontal with age making a rounded shrub. At the end of the stems, in spring, silky- almost downy- flower buds grow ton reveal pure white flowers with up to 12 tepals ( petals) and a light fragrance. Depending on the air temperature the flowers may have a pink hue. Its leaves arrive after flowering has finished and begin bronze tinted fading to light green.
Grow this magnolia in a container or in the garden as a focal point, but bear in mind to plant away from morning sun as a hard frost melted too quickly by the morning sun can damage the flowers.
Prefers ericaceous soil but will grow in neutral soil.
