Aphrodite is a good substitute for Black Tulip in cooler areas as it flowers a few weeks later. It grows best if planted in full sun in a well-drained slightly acidic soil.
If you need to prune the tree the best times are either straight after flowering or in late summer.
Aphrodite was developed by the German Magnolia grower Michael Gottschalk. It is a cross between the well-known Black Tulip and Deep Purple Dream. Both of these parents feature strong magenta colours, which are inherited by Aphrodite.
