Magnolia Anya


Heavy flowering compact spreading tree to 3.5m in ten years.
A chance seedling selected by Deryk Lawrence from the garden.
Rich red-purple flowers look like Iolanthe x Vulcan.

Deryk and Nancy Lawrence had a magnificent collection of magnolias in a garden at Te Puke. Deryk gathered seedlings that came up in the garden and lined them out. He named about 5 of them and Anya is quite stunning. You can see by the photograph that it is very heavy flowering.
