MAGNOLIA KOBUS- stunning white flowers on bare branches- slightly scented too.
MAGNOLIA GALAXY- very dark buds, and opening to dark pink. Must say at the moment it looks very like Magnolia Spectrum too.
MAGNOLIA CAMPBELLII – these flowers are enormous- the size of dinner plates!My father bought this 30 years ago- as a pink form , and waited 25 years for it to flower- and when it did- it was white!! Bit long to take it back- however it is stunning- can be seen from half a mile away- its tree size. I have bought him a pink campbellii- Charles Raffell- so hope he sees it flower…!!
Isnt Spring wonderful- eveything is bursting into bloom and buds are beginning to open. Hellebores are looking amazing, and the Pieris are opening- masses of tiny flowers- They can be white, pink or dark pink.
