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. Grows approx 3-4 m tall and 1.5-2m wide.

Cultural Notes: Performs well in a range of soil types, but prefers well worked friable soils; avoid very heavy water logged conditions. Plant 1 metre apart to create a hedge and up to 1.5 metres apart for a looser screen. Apply moderate moisture levels over summer, but can handle drier conditions once established. Occasional deep watering recommended. In a garden situation, feed annually after flowering with a general fertiliser. In a container feed in spring and autumn with a slow release fertiliser. Trim to shape, can be trained to single leader or trimmed as a bush. Not usually susceptible to diseases, but can get some leaf spotting in low light levels and if crowded.
