Large Established Magnolia Soulangeana 18 Litre: One of the most popular of the early flowering Magnolia trees. This variety produces large cup or saucer shaped pale pink flowers in early spring, this happens before the leaves arrive in late April. It is one of the most common Magnolia found in the Uk, its not difficult to see why as it produces a stunning display of flowers in very early spring, in most cases heralding the end of winter.

What to expect: Your plant will arrive in planted in a 18 litre pot, be very well established. 

 

Planting position: Magnolia Soulangeana prefer a good sunny spot but will cope well with partial shade. Preferably plant somewhere away from exposed windy sites and somewhere that avoids frost as much as possible, this is more important in early spring than during the winter as late harsh late frosts may damage the flowers.

Soil: Whilst Magnolia Trees prefer an acidic soil, they will adapt and grow perfectly adequately in other types. That being said chalky soil should be always avoided. Ensure the planting area has a good supply of water and does not dry out totally or become waterlogged.

Suitable for container planting: Possible but not something we would recommend.

Eventual height and spread: In absolute ideal conditions upto 8 metres with an 8 metres spread, however in the UK a height and spread of more than 6 metres is rarely seen.

Pruning: Not really a necessity, if you choose to it should be done in Mid-summer when the tree is in full leaf. Any broken or damaged branches can be removed as they occur.

Growth speed: Slow to medium.

Growth Habit: Bushy

Evergreen: No deciduous

Flowering Period: Produces huge goblet pale pink flowers in early spring depending on the weather this can be anytime from late March through to Mid April. Flowers are followed by large green leaves.

Foliage: Mid to dark green large leaves.

Winter hardy: Yes

Magnolia Trees are a relatively easy plant to maintain that have no real specific requirements. When planting prepare the hole by adding plenty of peat, this will help the plant adapt to its new surroundings quicker, also ensure your plant is planted at the same depth as it is in the pot. Like all new plants ensure a good water supply until established
