Leonard Messel Magnolia
Magnolia x loebneri 'Leonard Messel'
|Description||A delightful specimen that develops stunning, bi-colored, flowers on bare stems at an early age. The petals of the exquisite star magnolia-like blooms have rosy-purple undersides and crisp white topsides. Green foliage emerges after the flowers in spring. Excellent for use as a spectacular large shrub or small multi-trunk specimen tree. Deciduous.|
|Watering||Once established, water deeply when dry.|
|Mature Size||Slowly grows 10 to 15 ft. tall, 12 ft. wide as a shrub; larger in tree form.|
|Design Ideas||This gorgeous pink-flowering Magnolia can be treated as a small tree or large shrub. Plant up close to enjoy the flowers from indoor or outdoor living spaces. Integrate into flowering shrub borders or use as an accent in a sea of massed perennials. Make it the focal point of a smaller city garden, where you can carefully control the shape for night lighting and visibility.|
|Companion Plants||Forsythia (Forsythia); Spirea (Spiraea); Lilac (Syringa); Wisteria (Wisteria); Clematis (Clematis)|
|Care||Grows easily in deep, nutrient-rich, well-drained, loamy soil, but adaptable. Shelter from harsh winter winds and late season cold snaps. Water deeply, regularly during first few growing seasons to establish extensive root system; once established, water regularly to maintain evenly moist soil. Feed in early spring before new growth emerges.|
