Magnolia 'White Caviar' pbr
A medium size evergreen Magnolia /Michelia with glossy green, rounded foliage. This provides an attractive backdrop for its perfumed, creamy yellow, 20 cent coin size tulip like flowers which appear in Spring and Summer. Compact rounded shaped shrub.
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. Prune to shape in early Summer after flowering. We advise an annual application of good quality, pelletised organic fertiliser in Spring, and mulching and watering during drier months especially when the plant is establishing itself.
Perfect for hedging to 2m and great for planting along driveways because it responds well to clipping. Lovely planted near outdoor entertaining areas because of it fragrance. Grow in containers for a lovely clipped rounded shrub.
Height to 3m; width to 2m after 10 years
