Purple magnolia - luxury for your garden

The magnolia susan is a real eye-catcher for your garden with its flowers like porcelain. The magnolia liliiflora susan with its deep green glossy leaves is an ideal addition to your front garden. The exotic flowery fragrance and elegant growth of the purple magnolia makes it a true speciality among magnolias. The foliage of the magnolia susan is very beautiful to look at and is egg-shaped and pointed. The flowers of the purple magnolia are cup-shaped and give off a particularly sweet fragrance during their first flowering in spring. If you like the purple magnolia, it will even flower again in summer. Magnolias thrive ideally as solitaires. This plant needs a lot of space, even for smaller varieties like the magnolia susan you should create at least four square metres of space.

Combining the magnolia susan with other plants and garden styles

Because of its rather shrubby growth, the magnolia susan comes into its own particularly well in small gardens. The purple magnolia susan will certainly steal the show from all other trees and shrubs in your garden during the flowering season. The unusual appearance of this magnolia with its purple flowers makes it stand out. In minimalist gardens, the purple magnolia is ideal because of its opulent flowering. As the magnolia susan is a solitary plant, it is advisable to plant it in a place where it is the focal point of the garden. If you no longer have enough space in the garden or decide that the magnolia would not look its best there, it is of course possible to plant the purple magnolia in a pot and thus enrich your patio.

As the magnolia susan only flowers once, or at best twice a year, it would be particularly harmonious for your garden design if you underplant the magnolia with ground covers. The magnolia susan looks particularly good in front gardens, parks and pot gardens.

Ground covers that harmonise particularly well with the purple magnolia:

Blueleaf Funkie

Rock cranesbill Spessart

Evergreen with white or purple flowers

Care of the purple magnolia

The pH of the soil should be slightly acidic and kept consistently moist. It would be ideal to work the soil with humus and sand before planting. A slightly sandy soil is therefore advantageous as it protects the magnolia from frost. Loamy soils and waterlogging should also be avoided at all costs.

Compost for sufficient nutrients

Peat for the pH value

Sand to protect the magnolia from frost in winter
