Magnolia Sayonara

  • Flowering month: April
  • Flowering season: Late
  • Flower colour: White

Sayonara features large white goblet-shaped flowers, usually with a light pink base.  It is one of the later-flowering Magnolias.

Sayonara grows vigorously when young, calming down as it gets older.

Magnolia Sayonara is one of a number of varieties developed by Californian enthusiast Drury Todd Gresham, often known as "Gresham hybrids". Like many of these hybrids it is seedling of Magnolia x veitchii and Magnolia x soulangea 'Lennei Alba' - this was one of Gresham's favourite combinations for hybrid development.

Despite the Californian origins, many of the Gresham hybrids grow well in the UK.
