Southern Magnolia (Magnolia grandiflora) with its white, silky flowers of up to 25 cm (!) in diameter is a feast for the eyes but with its intense fragrance also a pleasure for the nose. We provide plants cultivated from cuttings or live stakes that already blossom after 3 to 4 years. The impressive flower is followed by a cone-shaped multiple fruit with eye-catching, red seeds. Southern Magnolia develops a close, pyramidal crown. At first sight, its sturdy leaves look similar to tropical gum trees. On the upside they are glossy dark green, underneath they are covered with a reddish- brown felt. With this double-colouration, this evergreen is an ornament throughout the year: in the garden as well as in a cool winter garden or big planter in which it can spend all summer outside. Its is a rather hardy plant that can be planted in a half- sunny, wind-protected place in the garden where it prefers a constantly moist, loamy soil deficient in lime. For a successful cultivation of Southern Magnolia it is important that also in winter the roots get enough water. If planted in an exposed situation, the plant should during periods of permanent frost be protected with shading from drying out by the winter sun.
