Lovely cultivar making a spreading tree freely producing large, white flowers, slightly purple-flushed at the base, goblet-shaped at first, then opening.
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.
Hybrid derived from Magnolia denudata x Magnolia liliflora.
