description:
Compact rounded habit. Shell pink flowers which fade to white on the inside. Later flowering than similar varieties.

cultivation:
Prefer heavy, rich and moist lime free soil, but can be surprisingly adaptable. A sheltered position, especially protection from early morning sun when frosts are likely will reduce the risk of damage to the flowers. Can be pruned after flowering or in July or August.

other notes:
Hybrid resulting from Magnolia liliflora 'Reflorescens' x M. stellata 'Rosea', one of the selections from the group known as 'The Eight Little Girls'.
