Description / Magnolia 'Genie'

Plant Patent 20,748

Perfect for today's smaller gardens, this spectacular Magnolia delights with a long spring-to-summer season of blooms, then frequently repeats in midsummer! More than a decade in the breeding, 'Genie' lives up to its name with almost magical color, fragrance, and form.

The blooms begin as striking blackish-red buds, help upright and very prominent on this well-branched little tree. They open into tulip-shaped blooms of dark maroon with reflexed tips of lighter magenta. Subtly scented with a sweet, rich aroma, they are indescribable in the vase, and stand out in the spring garden like beacons in the night.

The first and much the heaviest flush of blooms begins in early spring in most climates, and can persist all the way to the first weeks of spring. The second wave, when it occurs, usually appears in midsummer, long after you expect anything! It's a welcome little bow of rich color!

'Genie' was bred from cultivars of M. soulangeana and M. lilliflora by New Zealand plantsman Vance Hooper. The color of these blooms remains far more stable than that of others, another merit on this very meritorious tree!

Expect 'Genie' to reach about 10 to 13 feet high and perhaps 5 feet wide. A good size for a front-yard specimen, it also plays well in the border. Best in full sun and rich, well-drained soil. Zones 5-9.

This is my second one
Review by JOE
The first one was great, but my second one is dying of mildew. It got mildew right away and I thought if i planted it, it would get better, i also treated it. I planted it last fall and it made it through the winter but now most of the growth is from the base of the plant and I can't tell if its below the graft or not, and the mildew is back and all over the plant
Mildew is killling it
Review by JOE
THis is my second one of these. The first on was great, but this one has suffered from mildew that I can't get rid of. I need to know if this is a graft because the new growth is coming from the soil line. Is mildew a thing with these?
Growing Nicely
Review by PhilG126
I Just planted it in April, growing nicely, added about 6 inches and filled out in just 3 months. Not sure if it will flower as soon as next Spring but so far I'm happy with its growth and strength.
