Star Wars

Magnolia
Star Wars magnolia
Star Wars has received the RHS Award of Garden Merit

Star Wars features some of the longest-lasting flowers of any Magnolia, starting in late March and often continuing for a month.

The elegant flowers are a dusky pink colour. A characteristic of this variety is that the flowers point in several directions.
