Magnolia Soulangiana Rustica Rubra (Magnolia Trees)

Although Magnolia Soulangiana Rustica Rubra are perfectly hardy plants, the young flower buds can be damaged so it’s worth planting them away from frost pockets and sheltered from strong winds and gales. Most gardens can offer a suitable spot and they also do very well in the shelter provided by a woodland garden. They can be combined effectively with other plants enjoying the same conditions such as Rhododendrons, Azaleas and Camellias to provide a long season of flowering during spring and early summer.

Magnolias are quite easy to grow, they prefer a good depth of topsoil that is well drained but does not dry out too much in the summer months. If you have some reasonable garden soil this can be matched exactly to the Magnolias liking with the generous addition of organic matter, well mixed. Adding rootgrow at planting time will ensure they get a good start and a generous mulch after planting should result in strong and healthy growth in the first few years.

Established Magnolia Soulangiana Rustica Rubra trees seldom need pruning, except to remove damaged, diseased, or congested branches. Occasionally young Magnolia trees may need a little formative pruning to encourage a nice shape. This is best carried out during the warm summer months for deciduous varieties.
