Magnolia 'Black Tulip' (Magnolia Tree) Details

“Black Tulip” is an outstanding variety of Magnolia due to its spectacular flowering and tidy form. It bears masses of mildly fragrant, burgundy-red flowers in spring. The flowers are borne on the naked stems before the foliage emerges, providing for both a dramatic and colourful display. The lush foliage emerges light green in spring, ages to become a darker green, then develops yellow tones in autumn before falling. It grows with a vase shaped habit to about 8 m tall and 4 m wide, and can be trimmed as necessary. This tree grows best when planted in full sun on a well-drained, sheltered site, and is tolerant of frost, cool climates, and short periods of dry. “Black Tulip” makes for a fantastic specimen and is commonly included in a mixed planting, trimmed into a hedge, or planted to border an entrance. The beauty of this tree will please no matter where it is used.
