Care & Size Guidance

Magnolia × soulangeana thrives in well-drained, slightly acidic soil and prefers full sun to partial shade. Regular watering, especially during dry spells, aids its growth. Pruning should be minimal, primarily to shape or remove damaged branches in late winter or early spring before new growth.

With a mature height of 4-8 metres and a similar spread, this hybrid requires ample space to flourish. Providing adequate room ensures its majestic beauty, allowing the striking blooms to showcase their full splendour in the landscape.
