Evergreen magnolias are the queens of flowering trees. We choose the most beautiful and at the same time hardiest varieties.
This variety received its name after a French governor of Canada in the 18th century, and has been in cultivation in France for more than 150 years. It is very popular in the UK and Ireland, too, where it is considered fully hardy. It blooms beautifully with large, creamy white to pure white flowers in June and July while it has flower buds. It can be pruned just as you like, as it will always re-sprout.
