Magnolia stellata is a smaller, compact growing choice but what it lacks in size it makes up for in performance. It is one of the early flowering magnolias but has good frost resistance and looks simply stunning when the flowers emerge from fat little buds as pure white, slightly fragrant, star-like eruptions - simply stunning! The green ovate leaves emerge towards the end of flowering making a pretty, rounded shrub for the summer. Hardy, suits most soils and an excellent choice for a smaller garden.

- Eventual Size: 2.5 m in 15 years

Grows in most fertile, well drained soils but good compost must be added if planting in chalky soils. Very tolerant of clay and pollutants, needs little care except a good mulch in the winter. Pruning not usually needed.
