MAGNOLIA 'Genie'



This is the best new magnolia introduction from the point of view of colour to be seen in the UK for many years. Bred by Vance Hooper in New Zealand this soulangeana hybrid flowers very young and appears not to grow too big. The flowers are even darker than M.'Black Tulip' in bud and open an exquisite dark burgundy-red which they retain until they drop. Reserve one quickly as this will sell out very rapidly once you see if for yourself
