Wildcat

Magnolia x loebneri
Wildcat has received the RHS Award of Garden Merit

The main feature of Wildcat is the chrysanthemum-like double flowers, which have an attractive floral scent. The flowers are a pale pink, soon becoming bright white, and the tepals are typically about 10cm in size.

Wildcat flowers for a relatively long period, usually from April into early May.
