Susan

Magnolia
Susan magnolia
Susan has received the RHS Award of Garden Merit

Susan features dark crimson pink scented flowers. It flowers over a long period, and the flowers gradually open flat like water lilies, revealing white centres.

Susan grows with a compact form, and is a good choice if you want a Magnolia and space is limited.
