Magnolia stellata is a compact, medium-sized, deciduous shrub or small tree of broadly rounded, spreading habit with narrow, ovate, dark green leaves. Lovely, gently fragrant, star-shaped, pure white to pale pink flowers with narrow, spreading tepals, bloom in abundance in late winter or early spring before the leaves emerge. One of the earliest flowering Magnolias. Magnolia stellata prefers fertile, rich, slightly acidic, moist, but well-drained soils. It doesn’t like too wet or too dry soils. It thrives in full sun, but tolerates partial shade. Resistant to frost, but needs to be sheltered form high winds. Since it is early-blooming, late frosts may damage the buds. Intolerant of urban pollution. Low maintenance plant, doesn’t require pruning. Magnolia stellata is a beautiful flowering shrub, perfect for small informal, cottage, urban or woodland gardens. It is great as a specimen plant and for informal hedges and screens, excellent for lawns, foundations, and shrub borders.

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).
