Magnolia sprengeri Copeland Court

  • Flowering month: April
  • Flowering season: Mid-season
  • Flower colour: Pink

Copeland Court is one of the pink-flowered Magnolias.  It flowers towards the middle of the Magnolia season, in early April. The dusky pink flowers are borne on bare branches and develop tints of light purple.

The tree is reasonably compact by Magnolia standards, and also can have a more pleasing form than others.

This variety is named after Mrs Copeland of WT Copeland and Sons, china manufacturers based in Staffordshire. She and her husband acquired gardens in the Truro area of Cornwall where many of the flowers used in the designs of their pottery were grown.  Copeland Court was raised at by George Johnson of Trewithen, and is believed to be a seedling of Magnolia sprengeri 'Diva'.  The species originates from China and was introduced to the UK in the early 20th century.
