Your wish for a Saucer Magnolia that blooms even in cold springs is granted. Columnar Genie Magnolia (Magnolia x 'Genie' PP# 20,748) makes a wonderfully showy specimen without taking up much room.

Count on a show of oversized burgundy flowers each spring. Genie is a natural hybrid Saucer Magnolia that was specifically bred for a reliable flowering performance...even when spring frosts hit late.

This shrub bestows an exceptional accent in even the smallest gardens. Grow them in large resin containers to decorate a rented balcony and delight your guests.

Watch in late winter for the fuzzy, swelling buds. They'll soon reveal an exceptionally dramatic wine-dark color with black overtones.

Held on the bare gray branches, the flowers open into wide, Tulip-shaped blooms in early spring. Genie flowers feature up to 12 purple-red tepals that lighten at their reflexed tips.

The outstanding spring blooms are scented and gift your space with their perfume. Trim a few of the branches to use indoors as exceptional cut flowers.

After the first flush of flowers is faded, Genie develops commanding foliage with a strong mid-rib. Each leaf is glossy green on top, with pretty silvery underside.

Genie Magnolia looks amazing all season long. Keep your eyes out for recurrent blooms throughout the mid-summer.

Be astounded by this narrow columnar shrub's ability to fit into almost any landscape. Genie's petite size makes it a natural for the front yard, but looks great incorporated into mixed borders. Several can be used as an effective backdrop, too.

Tree Form vs. Shrub Form

The details make all the difference in a garden. At Naturehills.com, we understand that little things like what form a plant is can greatly impact how you plan your landscape. So before you buy, don’t forget to check which form you’re getting.

Tree Form: 

These are plants that have one stem coming from the ground. Plants can also be considered single stem when lower branches are removed to raise the height of the branching to a more desired height. Sometimes, you will hear a tree form referred to as a single stem.

Shrub Form:

These are bushy plants with many stems and branchings close to the ground. They are referred to as shrubs or bushes and are often shorter than their tree forms.
