Vigorous, upright small tree which freely produces large, erectly held white flowers flushed purple-pink from the base. Popular cultivar, flowering from a young age.

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. Tolerant of atmospheric pollution.

other notes:
Hybrid of Magnolia denudata x Magnolia lilliflora.
