Fairy Blush is semi-evergreen, and in mild winters will retain its leaves. It is best grown in a sheltered spot, protected from cold winds, in well-drained soil. Like most Magnolias it prefers slightly acidic conditions.
Fairy Blush was developed by New Zealand breeder Mark Jury, originally under the trade name MicJur01.
The species Magnolia laevifolia was until recently classified in a completely different genus, Michelia yunnanensis, but genetic evidence suggests it evolved as part of the Magnolia family. Even so, trees of this species are a bit different from the Magnolias we are used to. They are quite small, and usually flower prolifically and produce ornamental fruitlets from a young age. The flowers are often fragrant. The leaves are bright green and usually evergreen.
