Magnolia Rustica Rubra

Enter Zip Code for estimated delivery:

Magnolia - Rustica Rubra, Magnolia x soulangiana 'Rustica Rubra', produces giant dark red buds in the spring (that arise before the foliage) and then bursts into huge, goblet-shaped blooms of bright pink that lighten to nearly white near the petal tips!

An unbelievable sight in the spring garden, these blooms remain for several weeks and then the large, leathery foliage fills in around them.

The flowers are followed by large 6-inch bright red fruits, very showy and irresistible to birds.  In autumn, the dark green leaves turn a rich shade of bronze-gold.

Plant Rustica Rubra in a protected area without direct southern sun and where there is little foot traffic.  Shallow roots do not like compacted soil.  It is best to mulch and keep roots cool and moist.  Choose plant location carefully, as many grow large, and most varieties do not like to be moved.

Truly a specimen that will create a focal point in your sunny landscape, Rustica Rubra reaches 10 to 25 feet tall and 10 to 15 feet wide.  It is very tolerant of various soil and climates and prefers part shade to full sun.

*Stunning focal point

*Rich fall color

* Huge blooms
