Genie Magnolia (Magnolia 'Genie') - 5 Gallon Potted Tree
0 left in stock
Genie Magnolia is covered in stunning fragrant burgundy cup-shaped flowers with rose edges held atop the branches from early spring to early summer, which emerge from distinctive dark red flower buds before the leaves. It has green foliage throughout the season. The large pointy leaves turn coppery-bronze in fall. Genie Magnolia is a deciduous tree with a distinctive and refined pyramidal form. Its relatively coarse texture can be used to stand it apart from other landscape plants with finer foliage. This is a relatively low maintenance tree, and should only be pruned in summer after the leaves have fully developed, as it may 'bleed' sap if pruned in late winter or early spring. Genie Magnolia will grow to be about 13 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 6 feet. It has a low canopy with a typical clearance of 1 foot from the ground. It grows at a slow rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for 50 years or more. This tree does best in full sun to partial shade. It does best in average to evenly moist conditions, but will not tolerate standing water. It is not particular as to soil type, but has a definite preference for acidic soils.
