A plant to add to your garden must-have list, Magnolia 'Susan' produces delicately-fragranced, burgundy-pink flowers from mid-spring. This absolute stunner of a plant is ideal for smaller gardens, where its fragrant flowers will attract early pollinators - (as well as comments from your neighbours).
The slightly twisted, six-petalled, flowers open up to form a goblet shape, and cover the tree from tip to trunk in gorgeous colour before the mid-green leaves emerge.
Grow in moist, humus-rich, well-drained soil in sun or partial shade with shelter from cold winds. Late frosts may damage flower buds, so keep some fleece handy to throw over it in case cold nights threaten.
Supplied as a 3L standard plant 80-90cm tall.
