Magnolia Treve Holman


This tree was raised at Chyverton in Cornwall and named after Treve Holman who developed and planted most of Chyverton. Imported by Peter Cave, it is thought to be a hybrid between M. campbellii and M. sargentiana var. robusta. Historically it was M. sargentiana var. robusta that was the easiest plant to set seed at Caerhay’s Castle so there were many seedlings and hybrids planted in the gardens of southern England.Â
It is a large growing tree but well worth the wait if you have the space. We estimate it will flower after about 5 years from planting. Expect 6m in 10 years.
