Magnolia (laevifolia x figo var. crassipes)


Add to wishlist Remove from wishlist
We got this little gem as cuttings from the nursery manager at Stephen F. Austin Botanic Garden a few years ago and have been quite taken by its small glossy evergreen foliage and dense shrubby habit. Finally bloomed for us and we missed it but could tell from the fallen petals it was a lovely small white flower flushed gently in pink. This came to us as laevifolia x figo x crassifolia but its small habit suggests it is probably laevifolia x figo var. crassipes.
