Magnolia 'Purple Globe'
|C12||Height : 100-140 cm|
A variety of magnolia that forms a rather tall tree. Blooms profusely at the turn of April and May, before the leaves develop. Flowers of a rounded shape, 10-20 cm in size. The color of the petals is shaded on the outside, dark pink with lighter shadows, white inside. The petals, even when fully expanded, keep their rounded shape. Reaches about 8 m in height after 10 years. Moderate frost resistance (up to zone 6). It grows best in sunny places, sheltered from the wind. It needs a fertile, moist, humus-rich soil with a slightly acidic reaction. In winter, the root system should be protected by covering. Year-round mulching is beneficial. Recommended for medium-sized home gardens and parks.
