Large, elegant, creamy yellow, goblet-shaped flowers open from yellow buds in April and May on bare branches. This magnolia forms a natural dome shape and has spreading, horizontal branches that give it an elegance even when not in flower. This rare variety makes a superb specimen tree for a small garden. It is best grown in fertile, well-drained soil that is slightly acidic. A great tree for a woodland garden where it can be sheltered by other trees - it does not like exposed, windy sites.Magnolias can be a little tricky to grow to begin with but the rewards are well worth it. The main thing is to avoid planting in a frost pocket as this will damage the emerging buds, especially spring-flowering varieties. The same is true for exposed and windy spots. Once established, magnolias are fairly low maintenance though newly planted trees benefit from a good, deep mulch in spring to get them started.Garden care: Requires minimal pruning. Remove any broken, diseased or crossing branches after flowering. The best time to plant is in April, adding plenty of peat to the planting hole, in a sheltered spot. Mulch in spring with manure and leafmould, especially on dry soils.
