MAGNOLIA

Information - click to hide

LARGE and SPECIMEN sized magnolias are almost all grafted plants. Many are also very rare. LARGE plants are 2-3 year old grafts and SPECIMEN plants 3-5 year old grafts. Different Magnolia varieties grow at very different speeds and therefore the size of a LARGE or a SPECIMEN plant and the exact pot size it is delivered in can vary markedly for plants of identical age.

LARGE plants may vary in size according to variety (and also the time of year) from less than 2 feet to 4 feet in 3, 5 or 7.5 litre pots. SPECIMEN plants are usually (but not always) between 4 feet and 8 feet in height in 10, 15 or 20 litre pots. Magnolias do grow very quickly in a single season but do please ring to check the exact size of your chosen variety if you so wish. If we are unable to offer a LARGE sized plant we may well also have smaller plants at a lower price.

  • Good to know - an ancient genus named after Pierre Magnol, French botanist, 1638-1715. Evolving before bees plants were pollinated by beetles. Grown for their showy, solitary, fragrant flowers. These can be cup-shaped, saucer-shaped, goblet-shaped or star-shaped and often appear before the leaves. Colours range from pure white to white with blushes or stains of pink or purple, rich pink and purple, and various shades of yellow. Cone-like fruit is produced in autumn on more mature specimens.
