Holder of the Royal Horticultural Society's prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM), this stunning magnolia well deserves such recognition for its compact habit and dark purple-red flowers which appear from an earlier age than most other magnolias. It needs moist but well-drained soil that is acidic to neutral. Choose a sunny or partially shaded position that is protected from strong winds. Mulch around the plant every spring with well-rotted manure or garden compost.
