Genie's main feature is its stunning large fragrant crimson flowers. The flower buds are a black-red as they emerge, opening to a full deep crimson colour, initially against bare branches.
Genie flowers over 3-4 weeks in May, making it longer-lasting than many other Magnolias. It may produce a secondary display of flowers in the summer.
The tree grows with a neat compact habit, reaching perhaps 3m after 10 years.
