Magnolia x soulangeana is a spreading, deciduous shrub or small tree of upright habit when young and pyramidal to rounded as it matures, with smooth, silvery bark, and obovate mid-green leaves, golden-brown in autumn. Masses of fragrant, large, cup-shaped, white, pink or purple flowers, white inside, bloom in late spring before the leaves emerge. Magnolia x soulangeana is adaptable to a wide range of soils, except too wet and too dry. It prefers fertile, organically rich, slightly acidic, moist, and well-drained soils. It is tolerant of frost, but needs to be sheltered form harsh, drying winds. Early frost can damage flower buds. It can withstand urban pollution. Low maintenance plant, doesn’t need regular pruning. Magnolia x soulangeana is a hybrid cross between M. denudata and M. liliflora. This impressive magnolia makes an excellent specimen plant for informal, cottage, and urban gardens. Great for informal hedges and screens. 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).
