A charming evergreen with dark green leaves and a contrasting brown underside provides visual interest throughout the year. During late spring to summer the small cream flowers appear in the classic magnolia shape with showy petals and a sweet scent. With its dense, compact, and upright growth it would make a lovely addition to a small garden or as an eye-catching focal point in a border.
Grow in moist but well drained soil in a sheltered spot, to protect from strong winds. Full sun or partial shade. Height 8m Spread 4m.
