Baby Grand® Magnolia

Magnolia grandiflora var. 'STRgra'

A unique discovery from Australia. This dwarf evergreen magnolia has a very rounded form, ideal for the smaller garden. Perfect for those who have always wanted a magnolia but never had the room. Producing large creamy white, lemon-scented flowers in the spring and summer. Works well as a single specimen, in groupings, or as a free-form hedge.
