Product Description

Magnolia soulangeana, commonly known as Japanese magnolia or saucer magnolia, is a deciduous tree belonging to the Magnoliaceae family. Native to East Asia, it is one of the most popular magnolias cultivated for its spectacular spring flowers. This tree is renowned for its large and showy flowers, which bloom before the leaves emerge. The flowers have petals in shades of white, pink, or purple, depending on the variety, and emit a delicate and enveloping fragrance in the air. The leaves of Magnolia soulangeana are bright green and develop after the flowering, offering a charming contrast with the gently falling flowers. This ornamental tree is a popular choice for landscaped gardens due to its timeless beauty and ease of care.


  1. Climate: Magnolia soulangeana thrives best in temperate climates with warm summers and mild winters. However, many varieties are adaptable and can thrive in a wide range of climates.

  2. Sun Exposure: Plant the tree in a location that receives at least some hours of direct sunlight each day. Avoid positions exposed to cold winds and late spring frosts.

  3. Soil: The soil should be rich, fertile, and well-drained. Saucer magnolias prefer slightly acidic to neutral soil. It's advisable to add compost or organic material to the soil during bed preparation.

  4. Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist, especially during dry periods or during the first year after planting. Avoid overwatering, which could lead to waterlogging.

  5. Fertilization: Apply a balanced fertilizer specific for acid-loving plants in spring before flowering. Avoid excessive fertilizer, as this may promote excessive leaf growth at the expense of flowering.

  6. Pruning: Pruning should be done after flowering to remove damaged or poorly positioned branches and to maintain a harmonious tree shape. Saucer magnolias bloom on last year's branches, so avoid pruning too drastically to not compromise the next flowering.

  7. Pest and Disease Control: Keeping the tree healthy and vigorous through proper cultural practices can help prevent pest and disease problems. If necessary, treat with specific insecticides or fungicides according to the manufacturer's instructions.

By following these tips, you can enjoy the beauty and elegance of Magnolia soulangeana in your garden for many years to come.
