Star Wars Magnolia
Star Wars (Magnolia 'Star Wars') is the result of the crossing of the magnolia varieties M. liliiflora x M. campbelli. It was first introduced in New Zealand. Star Wars is early to flower as a young tree, which makes it a popular choice. The lovely large rich pink flowers, white inside, appear for six weeks, generally from mid March onwards.
A small height tree, so expect a height of up to 4 metres (13 foot) after 10 years.
This tree is supplied at a height of between 1.4 and 2.0 metres in a 7-15 litre container for year round planting and better results than from either bare-root or rootballed stock.
Message card included at no additional cost if required. Just add the information required on the card at checkout.
See What Our Customers Are Saying About Our Star Wars Magnolia Tree
My Star Wars Magnolia tree arrived safe and sound and on time. Love your website - right up my alley. Love the product too, you clearly have style and substance. Would buy from you again if my garden wasn't already so very full. If something dies I will be in touch. ;-) All the best, Kate 1013
Ornamental Tree Topping
All ornamental trees (not vines) are topped at 1.3 metres to encourage a natural ornamental tree shape with obvious exceptions e.g. patio sizes.This means that your tree was pruned during the growing process and then allowed to grow to the size it is now supplied at.

Ornamental Tree Roots In The Shade e.g. Behind A Fence
It is more important that that foliage (posh term for leaves) receives the sunlight than the roots. So if the canopy of your ornamental tree can sunbathe but the bottom of your tree thinks there has been a nuclear winter then that is ok. You might want to ensure you have good drainage as water and no sun is the start of algae and other such issues.
Do I Need To Stake My Ornamental Tree?
9 out of 10 times the answer will be no, especially if under 200cm tall. However our article on Tree Staking should help guide you.
General Magnolia Information
Magnolias are generally a low maintenance tree that can tolerate a small amount of drought but not wet for too long so make sure the soil has good drainage. Frequent watering in Summer is better than one large drowning. Magnolias do not require a great deal of pruning but removing dead, diseased and crossed over branches is a good idea. Pick a good spot and do not move them as they may rebel against it by hiding the remote control or not being as vigorous as before. In summary they don't like to be moved/transplanted.
Arguably larger pots mean larger root balls and therefore more vigorous growth.
