|Description||This is the darkest, most dramatic tulip magnolia of any on the market, with rich, deep burgundy-red six-inch-wide blooms that appear before the foliage emerges in early spring. The small, slender, multi-branched form is outstanding for use as an elegant specimen tree, en masse to form a hedge, or as a container plant. Deciduous.|
|Watering||Once established, water deeply when dry.|
|Mature Size||Moderate growing; reaches 15 to 20 ft. tall, 6 to 10 ft. wide.|
|Landscape Use||Container, Hedge|
|Design Ideas||This smaller yet exquisite dark flowering magnolia is the ideal early spring specimen for a close range focal point. Provides a vital seasonal accent tree integrated into foundation plantings. Well sized for edges of perennial borders or mixed borders with a background of tall, dark evergreens. Vital in pairs in the formal or Colonial composition and with federal style architecture. Superior urban front yard tree for high attention in the early season. Beautifully featured as a backdrop to flowering shrubs such as Rhododendrons, Camellias or Azaleas. Contributes a note of elegance in historic institutional plantings.|
|Companion Plants||Hydrangea (Hydrangea); Lily-of-the-Valley Shrub (Pieris); Camellia (Camellia); Azalea (Azalea); Clethra (Clethra)|
|Care||Provide deep, organically rich, acidic, evenly moist, well-drained soil; does not tolerate heavy, wet soils or drought. Water deeply, regularly during the first few growing seasons to establish an extensive root system; once established, reduce frequency, but continue to water deeply. Apply fertilizer before new growth begins in spring.|
