Magnolia Cream Fairy

​Looking for a spectacular flowering hedge?

With its bushy dark green foliage and masses of perfumed cream flowers, Magnolia Cream Fairy is an irresistible selection for the garden.Thanks to it's heady fragrance and elegant floral appeal, this evergreen magnolia has become a popular screening choice.

CULTURAL

A very hardy, performing garden plant, Cream Fairy prefers a moist but well drained, fertile soil that is slightly acidic. They do not like ‘wet feet’ over Winter when not actively growing. A warm sunny aspect is best, though they will tolerate partial shade. Pruning is essential to maintain a bushy plant. Late Spring, after flowering, is the best time to prune and will tolerate being cut back hard if necessary. We advise an annual application of good quality general fertiliser in Spring and mulching and watering during drier months especially when the plant is establishing itself.

LANDSCAPE USE

This is truly one of the most outstanding flowering screening plants on the market. It is perfect for background planting, hedging or small screening in gardens, and makes for a stunning pleached hedge. Underplant with Murraya for a double hedged look or Helleborus for an informal look! Grows well in large containers especially when clipped.
