Magnolia Daybreak is a beautiful deciduous pink magnolia with the RHS Award of Garden Merit. It flowers in May, somewhat later that other magnolia varieties and is noted for its upright fastigiated (columnar) habit. This stunning magnolia hybrid was bred in 1990 specifically as an upright columnar specimen. It has a small, slender habit that fits into gaps in the landscape.

Magnolia Daybreak blooms in May, which is unusual, and despite its slender branches the flowers are large measuring 23-25cms across. Blooms are beautifully tulip-shaped with a deep fruity citrus scent. Magnolia Daybreak blooms in all tones of pink from pale baby pink to deep carmine for 2-3 weeks. The flowers appear before its wavy-edged pale green foliage that lasts throughout the summer. In autumn the leaves fall to reveal a good branching structure that points skyward giving a bare garden architectural form.

Height and Spread of Magnolia Daybreak
With a maximum height and spread of 7 by 3.5 metres Magnolia Daybreak will fit into most narrow spaces.

How Hardy is Magnolia Daybreak
The small ornamental tree is very hardy down to subzero temperatures and its flowers are less frost susceptible as it blooms in May.

How To Use Magnolia Daybreak
If you have a space that needs a slender tree Daybreak Magnolia is a good bet. This is a superb specimen tree for the lawn, and it will do well in a large mixed border if it is not too crowded. You‘ll find bees and butterflies are attracted by its strong fruity fragrance.

Because Magnolia Daybreak is slender and pollution tolerant it suits compact urban gardens and new build homes that need a boost.

You can grow Magnolia in large well watered pots but they will tend to stay at a smaller size than free-planted specimens.

How To Care For Magnolia Daybreak
Magnolia Daybreak needs little care if it’s planted according to its needs. Like all magnolia it prefers a sunny spot but will tolerate partial shade as well. It’s important to avoid any frost pockets as frost damages the buds.

The best soil for a magnolia is neutral to slightly acid and it will do well in most structures including clay. Once established it is fairly drought tolerant too.

There is no need to prune this beauty but trimming out the broken or diseased stems can be done after flowering has finished. Occasional thinning of excess branches will produce new fresh growth the following year.

If you want a spectacular flowering tree Magnolia Daybreak is one of the best. It’s low maintenance yet glorious scented flowers make it a winner in small urban and large country gardens alike.
