Favoured for their showy and fragrant flowers, Magnolias belong to a genus made up of about 125 different species of tree and shrub that have hundreds of cultivated varieties (cultivars).

In colours spanning from pure white to white flushed with pink or purple through to pinks, purples, yellows and greens the flowers can be cup-, saucer-, goblet-, or star-shaped. Some of the blooms can be huge – M.grandiflora ‘Samuel Sommer’ has flowers reaching 35cm in diameter!

Many Magnolias will take many years to flower from seed but remember that this is a diverse genus. M.obovata can grow to 30m and M. x loebneri ‘Ballerina’ will only reach 3m!
