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.

Foliage Color Green
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.
