History

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.
