Shrub with erect habit that can easily be formed into a tree. Large, deep green leaves. Vivid pink flowers, purplish-violet at the base, shaped like huge tulips, semi-double that open in March-April time. They open into big stars and turn a paler pink at the end of flowering. Suitable for all gardens and can be grown in pots. They flower in early spring, almost always before the leaves appear. They love fertile, cool, deep soil which stays moist but which is also permeable. They don’t like limestone and can be planted singly on lawns or as bushes or shade trees near buildings because their roots do not damage foundations or obstruct drainpipes. The plant itself is hardy at H6 so only shelter in extreme weather conditions. It is prone to potential pests and diseases. Follow the guidelines for pruning magnolia. The final height is between 8 m – 12 m (26 ft – 39.3 ft) and the final width is between 4 m – 8 m (13.12 ft – 26 ft)
