Magnolia 'Vulcan' pbr

A beautiful, frost hardy deciduous magnolia variety that has become very popular over the last few years. Attractive foliage, a compact growth habit and magnificent deep magenta coloured fragrant flowers in late Winter make this a great plant to use in the landscape.

CULTURAL

Magnolias prefer a moist, fertile and well drained soil that is slightly acidic. A sunny aspect in a protected position is best, though they do tolerate partial shade, and some protection from strong wind will enhance and prolong the flowering season. We advise an annual application of good quality fertiliser in Spring, and mulching and watering during the drier months especially when the plant is establishing itself. Protect new growth from slugs and snails.

LANDSCAPE USE

Magnolias will make a spectacular feature either planted as a single specimen or in a garden setting, and they blend beautifully with other Winter/Spring flowering plants like Azaleas, Camellias and Hellebores. They have a non- invasive shallow root system that makes them ideal to plant close to the home for Summer shade.
