This is an interesting deciduous shrub with rich green, slightly glossy leaves and interesting magnolia-like flowers from early to mid summer on the tips of short spurs with the new growth. The flowers are a rich maroon-red-brown colour, actually much richer than pictured. The bush requires at least half a day full sun and does best with cool roots and good drainage. It will grow to 2.5m, and may be trimmed after flowering, in mid December.

This has been grown for many years by Peter Cave and is probably Michelia floribunda. Aptly named as it has masses of creamy scented flowers on a rounded tree to 4m in 10 years. New growth is covered with silky bronze hairs like a shiny cinnamon dusting, and the plant is quite hardy with inland climates like Putaruru. We just added a gallery of photographs below taken 22/6/13.

This is a hybrid with wonderful perfume. It is difficult to propagate but we have managed to do it after years of experimentation. It a native plant of Java and is grown throughout South East Asia so it is a little tender and can only tolerate a few degrees of frost. It can be grown successfully in a container where it will flower more profusely as long as it is given fertiliser and water on a regular basis. Once you…

Raised by Felix Jury, Apollo is a very free flowering hybrid with large reddish purple almost campbellii flowers and sturdy growth. The freeness of flowering means it takes longer to make a big tree as it flowers over a long period in spring, and again in summer. The tree forms a rounded canopy to about 4 m tall and wide in 10 years.

Magnolia ashei is classed as a subspecies of Magnolia macrophylla. This is probably the best garden plant of the species as it is the smallest grower. The foliage is generally healthier looking than ssp macrophylla. It occurs naturally in a limited range in northern Florida, where it lives in canyons and reaches out for the light from among pines and other species.It starts flowering from a young age, sometimes as a 2 year old seedling in the nursery. The flowers…

Magnolia 'Aurora' was raised by Os Blumhardt of Whangarei and is probably his best hybrid. It is a cross between 'Starwars' and M. sargentiana var robusta. It forms a columnar tree with an upright habit and settles down to flower in the second or third year from planting. One thing we have noticed at Magnolia Grove is that 'Aurora' will flower like clockwork every year while other varieties seem affected by the weather and flower later and earlier some years.

Brixton Salmon flowered 4 years from seed and is a hybrid of 'Genie' x 'Sir Harold Hillier'.We didn't propagate it for a few years due to its strong growing habit, but as it was an unusual rich salmon colour and flowered profusely we have done a few. Be prepared for a large growing tree, but also be rewarded with many flowers over a long season in spring, as well as summer flowers.
This is one of the best coloured yellow hybrids forming a small to medium sized rounded tree to about 4m in 10 years. It has received mixed reviews overseas with many references saying it takes up to 10 years to settle down to blooming, but this is DEFINIETLY NOT OUR EXPERIENCE. We have had Butterflies flower in the nursery as 2 year old plants, and in most cases you should have flowers in the second year from planting once the…

He donated a range of Magnolia campbelli seedlings to Pukeiti and these were planted around the gardens. The original plant of 'Cook Splendour' is growing in the area of the gardens called the Cook Block.…
