Magnolia stellata

Magnolia stellata

Unlike some magnolias, the Japanese species Magnolia stellata will tolerate alkaline soil (though not thin, chalky soils). It’s a medium-sized, slow-growing, deciduous shrub or small tree with a broad, rounded shape, the best magnolia for smaller gardens. In early spring, lightly scented, white flowers, 4”/10cm across with up to 18 narrow tepals, emerge like stars on the bare branches, lasting for several weeks. The flowers are more resistant to frost damage than those of tulip-flowered magnolias. Narrow, lance-shaped green leaves, sometimes with a bronze tint, appear later. Minimal pruning required; prune in late summer to prevent ‘bleeding’. Star Magnolia is an easy, deservedly popular shrub.
