“Magnolia loebneri Snowdrift is a hybrid of M. kobus and M. stellata, forming a small tree or large shrub, and producing a profusion of white flowers in April. ‘Snowdrift’ has particularly large flowers and slightly larger leaves. The flowers appear as a goblet then unfold into a star-shape. It will succeed well on all types of well-drained soil, including chalk. Full sun or partial shade. Very hardy.”
