Magnolia soulangeana ‘Black Tulip’

An iconic tree that will be a stand out in the Spring garden. Magnolia Black Tulip is a striking feature tree, with elegant form and bold flowers. Growing to 5m tall by 3m wide, it is compact enough to find a home in any landscape, but with sufficient height that it wonメt be lost in the wider plantings. Large, deep purple flowers emerge in early Spring on bare branches. Looking like a piece of sculptural art, the tulip shaped flowers appear to be floating in the air, and image that typifies Springtime Japanese and traditional style gardens. The dense canopy of large, grassy green leaves look lush over Summer, before turning yellow in Autumn. Magnolia Black Tulip is a wonderful tree for gardens large and small.
