Product Information

A fantastic variety for a small or medium garden because of its compact size, Magnolia 'Genie' makes a delightful specimen plant for cottage garden style planting or as a focal point in a large tub.

Blooming from April in a rich eruption of colour on the bare branches, the dark purple-red buds open to reveal rich maroon, lightly scented tulip-shaped flowers.

Much more floriforous than similar varieties, the blooms will hold onto their colour longer and in ideal conditions Genie can flower repeatedly for a few months.

Make space in your garden for this hardy, deciduous magnolia, and Genie will grow into an upright shrub around 3m x 2m, rewarding you with a glorious display every spring.

Sure to be much in demand this year, we supply an established plant in a 2L pot, ready for planting out.

Care Information

Planting Advice for Magnolia 'Genie':

  • Grow in well-drained soil in full sun, provide shelter from cold winds which can damage the buds.
  • Water your potted plant well.
  • Dig a hole a little deeper and 3 x wider than the nursery pot.
  • Add a soil conditioner such as well-rotted manure alonf with some ericaceous compost to the earth removed from the hole.
  • Remove the plant from its pot and tease out a few of the roots.
  • Place your plant in the hole at the same level at the pot.
  • Refill the hole with the earth removed (backfilling).
  • Firm in the soil with your heel, avoiding the root ball and water well.
  • Mulch around the base of the plant with a collar, compost, gravel, bark etc.

 

Aftercare Advice for your Magnolia 'Genie':

  • Water 'Genie' well and regularly for the first few months until established.
  • Do not allow plants to dry out in the first season after planting. Once established, they will become much more tolerant to a lack of water, as the root system develops.
  • Once planted, keep the area free of competing weeds.
  • Apply a general-purpose fertiliser and a generous layer of mulch around the base of the plant after planting and thereafter annually.


 

Pruning Advice for Magnolia 'Genie':

  • There is no real need to prune, simply remove any broken, diseased or crossing branches in midsummer when the tree is in full leaf.
