Product Details

Product Details

In early spring, lightly fragrant, 6" cupped blossoms appear on the slender branches of Magnolia 'Genie,' like goblets of burgundy. A second, lighter flush of bloom arrives in midsummer when provided with full sun and adequate moisture. Bred in New Zealand, this slender, well-branched variety blooms for a longer period, even when young. An ideal small tree to feature alone, in pairs, or to put the finishing touch on a mixed border.

Magnolia is a genus of over 100 species of trees and shrubs widely distributed from the Himalayas to East Asia and in the Americas. Introduced Japanese and Chinese species and their hybrids, such as the showy white Star Magnolia and the pink Saucer Magnolia, draw the most attention in spring. The handful of species native to Eastern North America include the magnificent, evergreen Southern Magnolia (M. grandiflora), Sweet Bay (M. virginiana), and the large Cucumber Tree (M. acuminata).

The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.


We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. We also ship a wide range of containers and planters, tools, supplies, fertilizers, garden wear, garden decor items, as well as indoor decorations like wreaths and dried bouquets when available. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the green Shipping Details box for each item. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at the expected time of delivery.


We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it. Please contact our Customer Service Department at 1-800-503-9624 or email us at [email protected]. Please include your order number or customer number when contacting us.

Genie Magnolia

Not as I had hoped, ordered 2, one seemed to do well and the other died very quickly. White Flower sent a replacement the following spring and that one is doing well. The one that did well originally is not doing well this year. We are seasoned gardeners and have followed all planting, watering and site location advice. Disappointed to say the least.

I am sorry to learn the remaining original Magnolia 'Genie' is not growing well this year and I will be contacting you via email regarding this.

Can you describe a tree as graceful? This tree arrived in mid-April and was packed with care. The tree is in its first bloom and is a deep color, just as described. Am looking forward to the second bloom. Happy gardening!

An excellent specimen or landscape tree. Plant Magnolia in full sun or partial shade in moist, well-drained, slightly acid soil. Pruning requirement are minimal—remove dead or broken branches in late winter or early spring when plant is dormant. Other pruning can be done as needed after bloom.
