This page lists magnolia varieties raised in New Zealand either by naming hand pollinated seedlings, chance seedlings, or seedlings imported to New Zealand in the 1950's and 60's.

Ian Baldick raised this hybrid and named it after his garden in South Auckland. An incredibly vibrant red purple produced on an upright to spreading vigorous tree.

This variety was raised about 1996 by Vance Hooper at Duncan and Davies and named after his mother. It is a cross between M. liliflora 'Nigra' and M. mollicomata 'Bernie Hollard' and it combines the best of both parents being free flowering and with a compact habit. The warm rose pink flowers are all held upright and are a bright colour. This brightness has made 'Margaret Helen' very popular in the northern hemisphere where lower light intensities need bright colours…

This hybrid was raised in the first forest of seedlings planted at Magnolia Grove. The foliage on 'Mighty Mouse' is also to scale with mature leaves being only 5 to 6cm long. We have a clump of 3 plants in the collection and they are about 1m tall after 6 years from grafting.

This Magnolia campbellii clone was identified by Ian Baldick and was found growing in a garden near the Waikato town of Pirongia which is in the eastern shadow of a mountain of the same name. This clone has almost circular tepals which overlap to give a typical but continuous 'saucer" to the newly opened flowers. This plant was added to the collection in 2008 as a one year old plant that had been budded onto M. x 'Rustica' seedling. It…

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 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)

This is a very recent hybrid from Ian Baldick and acknowledges his wife Shirley's support over the years. The growth habit is quite upright to slightly spreading tree with delicate pink perfumed flowers that reflect the M. sprengeri diva and M. cylindrical parentage.
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 is another Os Blumhardt hybrid of M. x veitchii x M. denudata that brings out the best of both parents. Originally named for the appearance of "a thousand" butterflies perched along the branches. The growth is upright to spreading with the plant settling to flower the second or third year from grafting (the next year from planting).
This is another Ian Baldick hybrid and is named for Tikitere Rhododendron and Magnolia Gardens at Rotorua. It is a strong growing rounded tree, with many blooms produced from the first year. Large leaves, thick stems and wind hardy flowers make this an all round robust plant. 5-6m in 10 years.
This variety was raised by Ian Baldick of Drury, South Auckland and is an exceptional addition to any collection. The flower is very similar to the sprengeri 'Diva' parent, but blooms appear at the end of the seaon on bare branches when most other magnolias are past their best. It will reach 4m tall by 2.5m wide in 10 years.
