Growing Calendar for Magnolia Betty 3L Potted Shrub
Delivery: Early January to Early January
A striking shrub, the Magnolia Betty is one that produces large, showy, often fragrant tulip-shaped flowers that tend to open before the leaves. They are then followed by cone shaped fruit. These flowers provide stunning blooms that are a deep red/purple outside and creamy white in the centre which can be seen from April to May.
Due to the magnolia’s small size, it is perfect for large pots so it can be used for decoration in small gardens. Producing gorgeous blooms and a heavenly scent, it makes an opulent ornamental tree with foliage that has a coppery hue which transitions to a deep forest green. This low maintenance shrub is perfect for using in a border, a city courtyard, a cottage informal garden or just as an accent plant.
Shelter them from strong winds and give them moderate maintenance and this beautiful plant will continue to reward you throughout the year. The Magnolia Betty is able to adapt to different soil types and will need a little space as they can grow up to 4 metres high and wide. They enjoy full sun and although they do not need a specific soil, they do like it well-drained and moist.
Shrubs offer visual interest all year round – whether in full leaf, full bloom or with bare stems set against the winter sky.
If you want to add height to your garden and increase the vertical interest consider planting a tree in your garden. There are trees particularly suited for gardens which don’t grow out of proportion to your property or develop too thick a canopy that blocks out sunlight.
