Genie is like a dwarf version of the highly sought after Black Tulip.
Very compact, neat and upright growth to 3m tall and 1.5-2m wide over 10 years.
Smothered in goblet-shaped, deep burgundy, fragrant blooms in September, and often again in March/April.
Soil must be very well composted and free draining - Magnolias hate "wet feet".
Full sun to part shade, Protect from hot summer wind.
Suitable for any garden, pots and planter boxes.
If you must have 1 magnolia, this is it.
