The iconic goblet shaped flowers of the Magnolia are a must have for gardeners looking to bring a touch of the exotic to the border. This compact shrub native to Southwest China and Japan is known by many common names, in particular as the Black Lily Magnolia. The flowers are held erect on sturdy branches amongst glossy elliptic shaped leaves. Deep purple-red outer petals in a narrow tulip shape gently reflex at the tips like a lily revealing a paler colour within. Flowering April to June, later than other magnolias, its bushy deciduous habit will reach a height and spread of 2.5m and will often need little or very light pruning to maintain a good shape. Nigra holds the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit for its reliable performance, stability of colour and form and good resistance to pests and diseases. 25-30cm tall plant, supplied in 11cm pot.
