Magnolia Heaven Scent is an elegant, slow-growing deciduous shrub or tree of upright habit, more spreading as it matures, dense, ovate to round, capriciously growing crown and glossy, dark green leaves. Very attractive, highly fragrant, goblet-shaped, lilac-purple to purple-pink flowers, fading to pale pink, bloom in spring and early summer on bare branches before the leaves emerge. Magnolia Heaven Scent can tolerate a wide range of soils, but prefers fertile, slightly acidic, moist but well-drained soils, in full sun or partial shade. It is resistant to frost but needs to be sheltered from harsh, drying winter winds. Late frosts may damage flower buds. Low maintenance plant, doesn’t require much pruning. Magnolia Heaven Scent is a cross of Magnolia x veitchii and Magnolia liliiflora 'Nigra'. It’s a wonderful, small ornamental tree, perfect for informal, cottage, urban and wildlife gardens. Great as a specimen or planted in groups. Suitable for growing in containers.

Arundel Arboretum is a shrub and tree retail nursery with over 40 years of experience.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
