Star magnolia - find the right location

Magnolia stellata Environment: bright, warm and protected

The ideal location is partially shaded and is in a sheltered location (protection from easterly winds). A sunny location can also be chosen. But there is a risk that the flowering time will be premature and the flowers will be damaged by late frost. A shady location has a low number of flowers.

In addition to the location and sufficient space, the Magnolia stellata needs a suitable soil for its roots. It tolerates heavy, weakly alkaline soils. The main thing is that they are moist. The following features are significant:

  • humus
  • angry
  • permeable
  • nutritious
