Description How to Grow More Info Delivery
Magnolia 'Elizabeth' is an elegant cultivar producing a refined display of pale primrose blooms from mid-spring, with the slightest hint of perfume. The cup-shaped flowers are borne in profusion upon bare stems, and persist as the leaves appear. New foliage is bronze, quickly colouring to a lush-green. This superb deciduous Magnolia matures to a conical shaped, large shrub or multi-stemmed tree. It makes a fine specimen for a woodland garden or as a stand-alone specimen to break up a large area of lawn. Height: 10m (32'). Spread: 6m (19').

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

Height Up to 1000cm (393in)
Spread Up to 600cm (236in)

1 x 5 litre potted magnolia plant (KA9895)

Plant magnolias in a sunny or semi shaded position with protection from cold winds and hard spring frosts. Magnolias prefer a rich, moist, well drained, acid to neutral soil. Incorporate plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost to improve the soil prior to planting, mixing it thoroughly and deeply. Magnolia plants establish quicker when their roots are shaded. Following planting, apply a mulch of rotted bark chips, manure or garden compost, taking care not to mound it around the stem of the plant.
Water regularly throughout the growing season until young magnolias are fully established. In spring, apply a mulch of well rotted bark chips or garden compost to the base of the plant. Magnolias require little pruning other than to maintain their shape and remove damaged stems or crossing stems.
