Burgundy Star features an abundance of large magenta flowers, which eventually open to a star shape. The petals can be up to 8cm long.
The tree grows with a distinctly upright habit, almost fastigiate - with branches emerging at acute angles from the main stem. This is quite unusual amongst magnolias, making Burgundy Star a good choice if space is limited.

Burgundy Star is very cold hardy, so winter cold should not be an issue in any part of the UK. However for best results plant in a sheltered sunny spot.
Burgundy Star was developed by Mark Jury, one of the world's leading breeders of new Magnolia varieties, and released in 2008. It is the result of a cross between 'Nigra' and 'Vulcan'. In most respects it takes after 'Nigra', but the large flower size comes from 'Vulcan'. Neither parent has the unusual fastigiate habit seen in Burgundy Star.
