Magnolia George Henry Kern
This compact and slow growing Magnolia is the perfect choice for small gardens or town gardens. A hardy variety of Magnolia, this hybrid is named after the American botanist that created it from Magnolia Stellata x Magnolia Lilliflora. This is a deciduous shrub or small tree, with shiny green leaves and stunningly beautiful conical pink blooms that have a heavenly scent with a long flowering period. All of these factors contribute to making George Henry Kern a highly popular variety of Magnolia.

This RHS Award of Garden Merit magnolia can be grown as a shrub or a tree. It is a beautiful choice for gardens large or small! Developed in the United States in the mid-twentieth century from trees native to Japan, Magnolia George Henry Kern blooms longer than almost any other magnolia. The pale pink blooms appear in March and April, and a few more may appear in July. The leaves emerge after the flowers have started blooming, and throughout the summer stay an attractive green before turning a coppery bronze in autumn. 

Hardy throughout the UK, Magnolia George Henry Kern will grow to a mature height of 2.5-4 metres and spread of 1.5-2.5 metres in 10 to 20 years. Little pruning is required to maintain the natural rounded shape, but if necessary, it should be done immediately after flowering has finished in late spring or early summer.

Plant Magnolia George Henry Kern in full sun or partial shade in a sheltered spot with a south or west facing aspect. Soil should be acid to neutral moist but well-drained clay, sand or loam. Once established this shrub does not like to be moved, so be sure that you choose the right spot the first time! Tolerant of pollution, it is an excellent choice for small city gardens. 

The compact size and extended flowering period of Magnolia George Henry Kern make it a good candidate for a rooftop terrace or courtyard, where it can be pruned to stay within bounds, while providing a long season of interest, first with its scented blooms and then with its attractive foliage. Towards the back of a mixed border, it makes a good companion for spring-flowering bulbs. It also works well planted as part of an informal hedge, or in a mass planting on a slope.

Magnolia George Henry Kern has many excellent qualities to recommend it - its fragrant blooms, attractive green foliage, and compact size mean that it can find a place almost anywhere! 
Growing Tip: Plant near a path or doorway to make the most of it's fragrance. View our entire range of Magnolias for sale online.
