Magnolia x ‘Burgundy Star’ makes a stunning Frost hardy feature tree. Its narrow, upright growth habit makes this variety suitable for a wide range of garden styles. Lightly fragrant large claret red blooms appear on bare branches in late Winter to early Spring. Our Magnolia 'Burgundy Star' 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.
Deciduous Magnolias are a spectacular feature plant and look fantastic planted as a single specimen or in a garden setting. They have a non-invasive shallow root system that makes them ideal to plant close to the home for summer shade. They blend beautifully with other winter/spring traditional flowering favourites such as Azaleas, Camellias and Hellebores.
