Magnolia 'Leonard Messel' (Magnolia Tree) Details

“Leonard Messel” is a popular variety of Magnolia due to its impressive flowering and lush foliage. Purple buds open to reveal large and showy, pink flowers in spring. The fragrant flowers are borne on naked stems, just before the foliage emerges. Green leaves emerge amidst the flowers soon after and age to become dark green. As autumn progresses the leaves take on yellow tones before falling. This deciduous tree grows compactly with a vase shape to about 6 m tall and 4 m wide and can be trimmed as necessary. It performs best when planted in full sun on a well-drained, sheltered site, and is tolerant of dry periods, moderate frost, and cool climates. “Leonard Messel” is a prized Magnolia variety that is commonly added to a mixed planting, grown as a specimen, included in cottage gardens, or used a stunning backdrop for smaller plants. It is a very rewarding tree with great aesthetics.
