Large 3-4ft Magnolia Sun Spire - Tulip Tree
Availability: Out of stock
Magnolia Sun Spire is a very special hard to come by variety with perhaps the best golden yellow blooms available from a Magnolia. These flowers appear from huge goblet shaped flower buds throughout Spring - a signal that warmer weather has finally arrived after a chilly winter.
Later flowering than many Magnolia varieties, it generally starts in late April and continues right up to early summer. This blooming period comes as a bonus in gardens that are prone to late frosts as it means the flowers are not affected by any late cold snaps in spring.
The glorious flowers, large in size - 15-20cms (6-7inches), and are carried on robust compact growing small trees, generally reaching 2-3 metres (6-10ft) tall over time. Eventually reaching as high as 6 metres (20ft) after several decades if left un-pruned.
This special long lived tree has been carefully grown to start flowering in their first season after planting. These blooms will cover the plants for several weeks before making way for the foliage. A truly magnificent variety for it's abundance of flowering combined with the bright warm colouration. Supplied as a bare root tree fresh from cold store at around 100-120cms (4ft) tall, these are fantastic quality strong specimens to establish in your garden this summer.
