Magnolia x 'Genie' pbr
New compact growing deciduous magnolia variety featuring incredible dark tulip buds which burst into deep burgundy blooms in late Winter to early Spring. Our Magnolia 'Genie' are grafted for optimal growing performance.
Magnolias prefer a moist, fertile and well-drained soil that is slightly acidic. A sunny aspect in a protected position is best, though they do tolerate partial shade, and some protection from strong wind will enhance and prolong the flowering season. We advise an annual application of good quality fertiliser in spring, and mulching and watering during the drier months especially when the plant is establishing itself. Protect new growth from slugs and snails. When planting grafted stock ensure the graft is at least 7cm above soil level, if planted below soil level this can cause fungal and/or root issues.
Being a compact grower, 'Genie' is perfect for smaller gardens or courtyards where space is limited. Genie is also perfect for growing in pots. The stunning deep purple blooms stand out like beacons in winter.
