Magnolia Genie is a stunning new variety of magnolia with deep purple, almost black blooms. It is the result of breeding Magnolia Soulangeana with Magnolia Lilliflora to create a magnolia with a compact habit and profuse dark flowers even on young specimens. This magnolia is a real stunner. The blooms are exquisite, very large and darker even than the popular magnolia Black Tulip. Its blooms begin life as small black buds in late spring, opening in early summer on bare stems with a sweet subtle scent that attracts early pollinators.

The profuse blooms last for weeks and keep their strong colouring until they fall, and many specimens have a second flowering in mid-summer. Foliage appears after the flowers in pale to deep green shades, falling in winter to reveal a strong structure. Magnolia Genie is a more compact magnolia suitable for smaller spaces. It will reach three metres in height with 1.5 metre spread after ten years. Mature trees can reach four to five metres in height.

How Hardy is Magnolia Genie               
Magnolia Genie is tough and hardy enough to withstand subzero temperatures even though it was bred in New Zealand. It fares best away from cold, drying winds and frost pockets.

How To Use Magnolia Genie
Pretty Magnolia Genie suits cottage gardens and formal planting structures with its strong modern colour. It is a perfect tree for smaller spaces as it retains a narrow growth habit.

Planted in a frost-free border or used as a specimen tree in the lawn it is a beautiful sight in early spring, and particularly attractive as a stand-alone feature. It is possible to grow Magnolia Genie in a large container too if it is well watered throughout the spring and summer months.

How To Care For Magnolia Genie
Magnolia Genie is low maintenance and needs little care if it is planted in a frost-free area that’s free from drying winds. For the best flower display you should water new specimens regularly and mulch in early spring. Pruning is not required, although you can remove any broken or crossed branches in winter.

If you are looking for some early spring colour in a compact garden you can’t beat this new variety of magnolia with its unusually dark flowers and compact habit. Its exotic appearance belies its easy to grow nature which is sure to delight beginners and experienced gardeners alike.

Magnolia Genie is the darkest magnolia available and makes a wonderful gift for the gardener in your life.
