The huge range of magnolia are big favourites of mine, dating back to prehistoric times magnolias are amongst one of the earliest known flowering plants.
At Big Plant Nursery we grow and stock a choice range of magnolia from the evergreen Magnolia grandiflora and it's types to the semi evergreen Magnolia virginiana and of course the showy flowers of the decidous magnolias.
Ranging from small trees down to medium sized shrubs there is usually a magnolia for any garden. I hope you enjoy looking at the Magnolias we offer, a selection of both well known varieties plus some rarely seen forms with flower colours from deep purple black to pale whites and vibrant yellows.
