Bred in New Zealand by leading Magnolia breeders, Felix and Mark Jury, Magnolia Black Tulip is glorious. This woody tree grows well in most climates, tolerating all but the coldest temperatures. It performs best in the sun and enjoys protection from strong winds. In early Spring the reward is a mass of magnificent, black-purple, goblet-shaped flowers. This upright, smaller tree grows to a height of 3.5 metres, making it suitable for smaller gardens or featured in larger landscape plantings.
Superb, goblet-shaped blooms up to 15 cm across.
Stunning black-purple coloured blooms.
Quick to flower - flowers within the first few seasons.
Smaller-growing tree, compact enough for most gardens.
Pruning is generally not necessary, except for early training.
