Spring Flowering Shrubs – Magnolias

common shrubsSpring is an excellent time to begin creating a little more colour in your garden. There are several spring flowering shrubs to choose from, but an iconic one is the Magnolia. Flowering before the leaves appear they are a real feature plant.

We’re going to take a look at two separate plants today from the Magnolia genus. These are Magnolia soulangeana (Saucer Magnolia or Tulip tree), and Magnolia stellata (Star Magnolia).

With a fairly compact form, Magnolia stellata features pure white, star-shaped flowers. They make an attractive shrub as focal point, or as part of a mixed border. It is easily one of the best Magnolias for a small garden. The flowers appear towards the start of the season, making stellata into an excellent choice for early spring interest.

Magnolia soulangeana produced numerous, goblet-shaped flowers in pale to deep pink. With an ultimate height of 4-6 metres, this forms a large shrub or small spreading tree and a colourful centrepiece in your garden.

Both species mentioned here are fully hardy, some extra protection may be required from late winter frosts. Neither requires extensive maintenance, and will be able to survive in almost any soil type, so long as you achieve a good level of drainage.

Naturally, both are in season, and it’s an excellent time to invest for a little more spring interest around the home. You can pick them up from £72.00 to £96.00, among our collection of common shrubs.
