|Lore||Early breeding of Asian magnolia species began in France because the first imported species arrived there early on. The Jesuit missionaries in China were French and often became amateur botanists, collecting new plants to be sent back to Jardin des Plantes in Paris. Not until later did many of these species become established in British horticultural circles from which our English language texts originate.|
|Average Size at Maturity||Upright, narrow form reaches 10 to 12 ft. tall, 3 to 4 ft. wide in ten years.|
|Bloom Time||Early to Mid Spring|
|Design Ideas||Few trees are as stunning as the deciduous, spring-blooming magnolias, which are a traditional candidate in the Asian garden, and equally at home in old-fashioned cottage gardens. The exceptional upright, narrow form of Burgundy Star lends itself to smaller gardens and symmetrical, contemporary landscapes. A perfect choice for town-house and condominium gardens. Plant up close in courtyards or near entryways, to enjoy the deep purple-red tones of the big flowers. Feature in groups to create a stunning front yard accent, or use to anchor separate beds to unify a large garden space. Plant in a row to create screening between property lines, where their intense color will be the talk of the neighborhood. In urban settings, the potent red flowers are so vivid they can be seen at the far end of a deep city lot. Narrow enough to dress up side-yards where it can be viewed from indoors. Super for marking gates and entries, or as a pair in a formal shrub or perennial gardens.|
