Magnolia x soulangeana - 2014


By Andrewr

Magnolia x soulangeana - 2014 (Magnolia x soulangeana)

Spring-flowering tree, reaching twenty feet. Prefers a humus-rich acid or neutral soil, in sun or part shade, with shelter from strong winds. My tree is nearly thirty years old now.

This is a very popular tree at the coast, and has to be pruned heavily every year to keep it manageable, it even thrives despite the cold winds....

DD - I grew up in Exmouth, Devon, which is where the first magnolias were grown in this country. Sometimes, it seemed as if every other garden in the town had one growing.

That's a lovely one, Andrew. I wish I knew the full name of my white one. Looking at the adverts on my right, I suppose it could be M. x soulangea 'Alba'!!!

Spritz - it's just the straight cross, not a named one, but still my favourite. Plant Finder lists 26 named ones - take your pick!

So difficult to remember the name of mine, but does it really matter?
