Magnolia Cleopatra



Cleopatra’ has a very similar colour to her great grandfather ‘Lanarth’. An attractive crystaline red-purple that almost has a metalic sheen. The growth habit is an upright small tree with a columnar to pyramidal habit. ‘Cleopatra’ will produce summer flowers, particularly where summer rains are common.In January 2013 ‘Cleopatra’ won first prize for the best new tree at the International Plant Trade Fair in Essen, Germany. This recognises the special qualities of ‘Cleopatra’ and helps put Magnolia Grove on the world map of magnolia breeders.
Of interest for Northern Hemisphere growers, ‘Cleopatra’ is showing good resistance to mildew.
