Fairy Magnolia Blush
Fairy Magnolia® Blush is a new hybrid of Michelias bred to produce masses of beautiful fragrant flowers blushed with lilac-pink in early Spring. These plants are so free flowering that they have a flower bud at each leaf axil and have been known to provide a light flush of flowers during summer too.
The plants are bushy with rich evergreen foliage, which makes them ideal in the garden as a flowering hedge or specimen plant.
