The Magnolia soulangeana is the most famous of the Magnolia, and for good reason. The elegant rose-pink flowers of this deciduous bushy tree start to appear in spring, normally around the same time the gorgeous bronze green foliage starts to emerge.

As the Magnolia soulangeana grows older it still remains compact but shapely, making it ideal for small gardens.
