  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: any moist but well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average to fast
  • Flowering period: March to May, then off and on until September
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Raised by the New Zealand breeder Mark Jury (who also brought us Magnolia Black Tulip), this wonderful magnolia produces an abundance of blush pink flowers along the length of its stems in spring. Unlike many of the other spring-flowering types, the foliage of this magnolia is mainly evergreen, although it may shed its leaves in colder winters. It makes a fine stand-alone specimen, especially in smaller gardens where its compact form will not dominate, while its naturally bushy habit makes it ideal for creating an informal screen. A stunning addition that is easy to care for, reasonably fast growing and will start to produce its lightly scented flowers on young plants.

  • Garden care: Plant in a sheltered spot, away from strong winds. Requires minimal pruning. Remove any broken, diseased or crossing branches in spring. Mulch in spring with manure or leafmould, especially on dry soils.

A really lovely plant


This plant has proved to be a joy free flowering a lovely delicate pink set against handsome foliage. The plant that was delivered was superbly packed and in lovely condition




Ideal for my overflowing border


I bought this to fill a space in front of my living room window. It came, securely packed as always from Crocus,healthy looking,a generous size for the price and already with several fat buds. I like planting different types so this will extend the varieties I already own.

How far away should this be planted from a house? I was hoping to plant it 3m away and just want to check the roots won't spread that far. Thanks


The rule of thumb is that a plants roots will generally not spread much further than its eventual height or width, so I would say that planting this 3m away from the house would be a great option.


When is it best to move fairy magnoloas


The evergreen shrubs prefer to be moved when they are dormant, but while the soil temperatures are not too low. Therefore, the best times are late autumn or early spring. You may find our video about how to move a shrub helpful, so please click on the following link to go straight to it.


Hi, I've had this Magnolia in the garden for 4 or 5 years. It's barely grown and hasn't flowered yet. Am I doing something wrong? Should I move it? Should I feed it? I really want to look after it! Thanks in advance.

Hello, If the plant has put on such little growth, then I suspect that it is not getting enough water and nutrients. Therefore, give it a generous mulch each spring, feed it with a good general purpose fertilise and keep it well watered. The provided it is getting sufficient sun, it should start to flower.


I have a long narrow garden and i am thinking of growing magnolia or camellia into a hedge. Would this be a good option to prune into narrow hedge?


Hello, It depends on how hard you plan on cutting it back as although they make great hedges, I would allow it to grow to at least 1m in width.


Hi. I want to grow these into a hedge at the front of our garden. How closely should I plant them together so they form a dense barrier?


Hello, To create a nice dense screen, I would advise planting them at 45cm intervals.


What height including, excluding the pot, will the 3 litre magnolia arrive as please?


Hello, The batch we currently have are around 60 - 75cm tall.


Please couid you tell me if the 'MAGNOLIA FAIRY BLUSH' needs planting in ericaceous compost? Many thanks.


Hello there No this magnolia doesn't need ericaceous soil. Hope this helps.

Does the 1 litre come with a single stem which could be trained as a standard?


Hello there This magnolia in a 1lt pot is only a young plant, so will only be approx 20cm tall so young enough to train into a standard over time. Hope this helps

Will Magnolias survive really cold winters Thank you for the information on Magnolias. However, we live 1000 ft above sea level in Mid-Wales and had temperatures in January 2010 down to Minus 16C. Can I really grow Magnolias in our situation? Margaret

DerekandMaggie Parker

Hello Margaret, The Magnolias we sell are fully hardy in most areas of the UK, however the best indication of what will grow in your area is to see what is already there. Alternatively if you really get blasted by wind or freezing temperatures and you want plants that usually won't tolerate these conditions, then perhaps you need to create a shelterbelt, which will produce a microclimate. I'm sorry not to be more help. Helen Plant Doctor

Magnolia planting Hi, I have just taken delivery of a Magnolia (Star Magnolia). At the moment it is outside, in the bottom half of the box. I have just checked on your website and it says it is best to plant in April. What should I do with it in the mean time, and how do I care for it? Regards Laura

Laura Steed

Hello Helen Thank you for your help - I will do as you suggest. Laura

Laura Steed

Hello Laura, These are fully hardy so, although the optimum time for planting is spring or autumn, they can be planted out at any time of the year as long as the ground is not frozen. Therefore I would recommend you get it into the ground as soon as you can. I hope this helps. Helen Plant Doctor

Certain plants seem to capture the spirit of the moment and Magnolias take centre stage just when the garden is full of promise. But these plants have been on the planet since the age of the dinosaur when the earth existed as one large land mass. When con
