Excellent vigorous, upright small tree. Long, erectly held flowers in spring, shaded dark reddish-purple on the outside and white inside. Large leaves. Flowers are readily produced by young, small plants.

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:
Of Japanese origin, found in a garden there in 1930. Hybrid derived from Magnolia denudata x Magnolia lilliflora.
