Simply Magnificent! Magnolias are a very ancient genus with fossilized remains showing their presence on earth even before the honey bee arrived. As a result of this you will find that Magnolias are usually pollinated by some form of beetle. The genus was not actually called Magnolia until the 17th century when they were named after a French professor of Botany called Pierre Magnol. Deciduous Magnolias are from Asia and evergreen Magnolias are mostly from America.  

These days a strong influence on the development of the genus comes not from France, Asia or America but New Zealand. The Jury family from Taranaki and Oswald Blumhardt from Northland have raised many highly desirable hybrids and introduced them to the world. If you want to plant a New Zealand bred deciduous Magnolia look for such delights as "Athene", "Atlas", "Iolanthe", "Vulcan" and "Star Wars" to name just a few.

Bred in NZ by Ian Baldick this beautiful Magnolia has spectacular large blooms of rose pink. The flowers appear late in spring and have a delightful perfume. This Magnolia is considered easy to grow and very hardy, certainly worth a prime position in the garden. Deciduous. Est.10yr.growth.

Magnolias grow best in a sunny, sheltered position with protection from strong winds. They prefer a well drained, acid soil and don't like lime. They appreciate a nice layer of mulch around their roots from time to time and in my opinion are one of the most rewarding and beautiful trees to grace any garden.
