This is a Japanese species and belongs to the "umbrella magnolia" group of species so named because they hold their foliage in whorls or umbrellas at the end of the new seasons growth. This species requires a reasonable amount of shelter to avoid wind damage to the soft growth. The new growth is slightly bronze and the foliage develops to a mat green with visible veins. The flowers are held above the foliage and emit a delicious fruity perfume that…

This variety was raised at Duncan and Davies by Vance Hooper about 1993. The elegant red flowers have a white interior with a purplish mark at the base. The perfume is quite strong and pleasantly distinctive.

This is Os Blumhardt's best yellow hybrid raised from M. x brooklynensis hybrid x M. acuminate 'Miss Honeybee'. The flowers mostly appear before the elegant healthy foliage is produced. Bonus summer flowers are also produced amongst the foliage to add interest, especially when there is summer rain.

This is a big grower with the original plant at Caerhay's Castle being 38 years from seed and 50 feet tall and wide in 1991. It was then named after the head gardener at the time. Peter Cave imported it to New Zealand and propagated some plants. It is another hybrid between M. campbellii and M. sargentiana var. robusta. The flower is described as reddish purple outside and pink within. In New Zealand we expect it to get to 6m…
This is another Os Blumhardt hybrid that deserves a name. A free flowering hybrid from the second or third year from budding. Large sculpted flowers produced on the bare branches, and healthy foliage comprises of medium sized campbelli type leaves. The tree will reach 4 to 5m in 10 years. The more we see this variety flower, the more it looks like a hybrid of 'Mark Jury' rather than M. campbellii.

This hybrid bred by Ian Baldick was raised from the English classic variety 'Lanarth' and is a very good substitute for this variety. It has a similar upright habit and will begin to flower at about 3 or 4 years from planting with luscious purple flowers. Expect 4.5m in 10 years.

This is a sister seedling to 'Cook Splendour' and was also grown at Pukeiti Gardens, Taranaki. A large tree with the largest flowers of any of this series of Magnolia campbelli seedlings at Pukeiti. The frlowers from a distance give the impression of white or palest pink, but up close they are a cool pink with a hint of purple. It is a strong growing tree and in a sheltered spot you can expect 6 to 8m of growth in…

A small upright tree of slender habit with cup shaped blooms of strong rose-purple. Early to mid season flowering. Bred in New Zealand by Mr Peter Cave. One of the best "purple" magnolias. Deciduous. Height estimated at 4 metres in 10 years (width 1.5 metres)

Quantity:
This species has white pendulous flowers with a pink boss of stamens. The plants tend to branch from the base forming an upright spreading small tree. Later in summer the pendulous seedpods turn bright red and are quite a feature. Autumn foliage turns yellow before falling.
This hybrid arose as a rootstock seedling at the Auckland Botanic Gardens and is an interesting combination of the two parent species. Ice white well formed blooms with a deliciously sweet and spicy perfume on a rounded small to medium tree. It flowers so profusely that we had difficulty establishing growth from the first grafts collected. A welcome addition to the range of evergreen magnolias.

This variety was raised by Amos Pickard in Kent, England in the 1960's. The strong textured creamy white blooms are freely produced on this upright to rounded small tree. The growth and blooms themselves strongly suggest a M. denudate or M. x veitchii parentage. Expect about 4 - 5m in 10 years.
This variety has grown in appeal as it developed from one of the earliest plantings at Magnolia Grove. It forms a rounded tree to about 4m in 10 years and flowers over a very long period from spring to early summer.

This is an elegant plant with an elegant flower. A small tree with an upright habit that eventually forms a teardrop shaped tree with a conical habit. This variety is ideal for a small garden and will grow to about 3m in 10 years. Just a few big plants left.
This is an Australian hybrid between M. doltsopa and M. laevifolia (yunnanensis) that forms a pyramidal tree with horizontal branches that present the perfumed white blooms very well.

This is another good pink coloured stellata variety with very full flowers with many tepals. It is probably the most vigourous stellata variety so you can expect 2.5m in 10 years.

Quantity:
This is another good pink coloured stellata variety with very full flowers with many tepals. It is probably the most vigourous stellata variety so we have grafted them at 1m to 1.2m tall and this makes a beautiful little tree in no time. We have one in the garden that has grown to 3.5m in 10 years, but in quite a sheltered place.

This is a Japanese hybrid derived from M. stellata and M. denudata. The flowers are intermediate in tepal size and held more upright than M. stellata. The blooms are lightly fragrant and the plant is compact and bushy, more upright than stellata and reaching about 3.5m in 10 years.

This is another yellow hybrid that has exceeded expectation as it has improved in colour since the first flowering. The narrow branch angle means Sun Spire has a quite narrow habit, but it may eventually spread with age like most other fastigate trees if it doesn't get enough full sun. This is a hybrid of M. Woodsman and M. Elizabeth which makes it a sister to Sunsation. The flowers of Sun Spire will have a slight pink base when the…

This is one of the best, clearest pinks available and has very little purple undertone. This was also raised by Amos Pickard in Kent, England, and is strongly reminiscent of the Todd Gresham hybrids derived from M. x veitchii. It also resembles M. San Jose very strongly in habit and flower form, but is a much clearer pink colour. It is a medium to large tree and will reach 5 to 6m in 10 years. It flowers very heavily from…
This hybrid has proved to be one of the reliable yellow hybrids to flower mostly before the foliage develops. Rich creamy yellow flushed pink blooms look quite golden with the sun shining through them. The tree forms an upright columnar crown with laterals that develop layers of twiggy branches with clusters of flowers.
