Fairy White is a small Magnolia producing pure white fragrant cup-shaped flowers. It is the earliest-flowering of the "Fairy" series of Magnolias, and also the most vigorous - but still likely to be less than 3m tall in the longer term.
The flowers are long-lasting, and a second flush may appear in early summer.

Fairy White responds well to pruning, and will readily produce new shoots after cutting, making it a good choice if you want to try a Magnolia hedge.
Fairy White was developed in New Zealand by Mark Jury, a well-known breeder of new Magnolia varieties. It is a sister variety of Fairy Cream and Fairy Blush. These three Magnolias all belong to the species Magnolia laevifolia, which is very precocious, producing flowers from a much younger age than the more established Magnolia species.
