Magnolia Purpurea, also known as the purple magnolia or the Yulan magnolia, is a deciduous tree that belongs to the Magnoliaceae family. It is native to eastern and southeastern Asia and is widely cultivated for its attractive and fragrant flowers. The tree grows to a height of 15-20 meters and has a rounded crown with dark green leaves that turn yellow in autumn. The flowers are large, cup-shaped, and fragrant, with a diameter of 10-15 cm. They usually appear in early spring before the leaves emerge, and their color varies from pink to purple or even white. Magnolia Purpurea prefers well-drained soil and full sun to partial shade. It is relatively easy to grow and requires moderate watering and pruning to maintain its shape. The tree is hardy in USDA zones 6-9 and can withstand temperatures as low as -10°C.

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).
