“Magnolia Rose Marie is a hardy and deciduous and long-blooming pink magnolia that flowers later in the season to avoid frost.
Compared to other Magnolia variants, it blooms very late and has a long blooming habit. Frost-hardy buds open to large, delicate goblet shaped, lovely pink blooms that have a citrus fragrance. The bloom can show for up to six weeks in spring, a month later than other varieties.
Deep green foliage follows the flowers in late spring. An excellent small ornamental tree for urban courtyards, compact gardens, and sunny roof terraces.
It is a moderate growing, small tree reaching 3 – 4 metres tall and a spread of around 2 – 3 metres in 10 years. It will thrive in either full sun or partial shade and can tolerate frosts in winter. Prefers fertile neutral to acidic soil.”
