Magnolia Kobus or the Northern Japanese Magnolia is a beautiful, slender small magnolia tree that reaches a maximum height of just 10 metres. It fits into almost all gardens schemes and particularly likes chalky soils.
Magnolia Kobus is a popular deciduous small Japanese tree. Its fragrant white flowers are one of the first colours to emerge in April, sometimes March, after a long dark winter. The flowers are large, pure white blooms measuring up to 10 cm wide. Each bloom is individually comprised of six distinct snow white petals. This is not a tree for the impatient gardener though, because it can take up to 12-15 years for flowers to emerge. It is a slow growing beauty that’s in it for the long run. However, once you have waited out its maturity this is a regular, abundant bloomer. Flowers are followed by foliage and pink fruits with scarlet seeds that appear in late summer. The large leaves measuring up to 15 cm long are borne in thin ovals of a mid-green hue. They turn yellow in autumn and fall with the frosts.
How Hardy is Magnolia Kobus Northern Japanese Magnolia is beautiful but it is extremely tough. It will withstand severe winters and sub-zero temperatures in soil that is not waterlogged.

How To Care For Magnolia Kobus This is an excellent tree for chalky conditions, but it will grow well in most soils. Pruning is not required, but you can remove broken or crossed stems in mid-summer after the flowers have finished and the leaves have appeared.
Although tough, flower buds may be damaged by late frosts, so it is best to site your Magnolia Kobus in a sheltered position with full sun that is free from freezing winds. Treat it to a thick layer of mulch at the beginning of each year for good healthy growth.
