Magnolia x loebneri ‘Ballerina’

Magnolia x loebneri ‘Ballerina’

Magnolia x loebneri, a hybrid between two white flowered Japanese species, M. kobus and M. stellata, was first crossed by the German horticulturist Max Loebner during the first years of the 20th century.

 

A deciduous small tree or large shrub eventually growing some 5 or 6 metres tall by 5 metres across ‘Ballerina’ is covered in 12-15 cm wide flowers with 30 petals each with a faint blush at the base.

 

Like most of its kin Magnolia ‘Ballerina’ should be planted in full sun or light shade in a sheltered spot from the full blast of hot winds. It enjoys humus rich well drained soil and some supplementary watering during dry periods. $19.95 each
