Buy Magnolia Fairy Magnolia White ('Micjur05') (PBR) fairy magnolia: Brand new and very beautiful


  • 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

    Another wonderful new magnolia from the renowned New Zealand breeder Mark Jury, this white-flowering evergreen produces its flowers along the stems (not just at the tips), so you get masses of flowers. The main flowering period is spring, however it is not uncommon to have them appear off and on right through summer and into autumn. A very beautiful specimen, they are also great for hedging as they do not mind being clipped back. It may be worth pointing out that in colder winters it may shed most (if not all) of its foliage.

  • 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.

Eventual height & spread

Very impressed with the Fairy White Magnolia, which we would want to grow into an informal 'hedge' type to visually divide the garden. The eventual hedge would be 2.5 metres across by about 4 foot high. How many plants would we need to buy and how long would it take to grow upto about 4 feet please? Do you have any larger versions available than are currently advertised?

Still learning!

Hello, It is very difficult to be too specific about growth rates as these are largely determined by external factors such as the available water, light and nutrients. If I were to make a ball-park guess, I would say that in ideal conditions this will get to around 4' tall in 5 years or so, but keep in mind that if you are growing plants for a hedge, you should cut back their top growth as they grow as this encourages bushier growth. Finally, it is worth mentioning, that this plant would be happier growing to around 6', so may not be the best choice for such a (relatively) low hedge.

Hello: a question please not particularly about this type of Magnolia, but in general. I have a Magnolia tree which has never bloomed - it is approx 5yrs old. the leaves drop constantly with a brown marking on them. Please could you advise me about it. Kind Regards

Hello, There are number of reasons why plants do not flower. The most common causes are either a lack of sun or not enough nutrients. Also, many plants start getting leaf spots when they are stressed - and this could also explain the constant shedding. Therefore I would take a good look at the place you have this Magnolia and see if the growing conditions can be improved. Make sure it is kept well fed and watered and if you can cut back overhanging branches or neighbouring plants that may be overcrowding it. With all this TLC, you should start to see an improvement.
