Magnolia x loebneri 'Leonard Messel'
This magnolia has been a Howbert & Mays favourite for many years. We love it because of its pretty pink flowers, elegant, multi-branched vase shape and relatively modest size. Magnolias make wonderful trees for small to medium-sized gardens, offering interesting foliage, beautiful flowers in early summer, good autumn colour and general hardiness. 'Leonard Messel' can grow to a height of 4-8 metres, with a spread of up to 4 metres. Plant in most locations in fertile, well-drained soil, preferably in neutral to acid soil. The flowers have a delicate fragrance.
Irish-grown plants, 125-150cm in a 20 litre pot.
Generally available in our Monkstown shop. Due to the size and weight of this plant, it can only be delivered in County Dublin.
