This page is going to work a little differently to the Acer index. It is complicated by the presence of a mixture of cultivars complete with specific epithets as well as hybrids with no preceding designation. 

We have some 360 different magnolias in our collection, and I have divided these between 4 pages in the plant list. In these 4 pages, they are listed alphabetically by cultivar. For example, as a completely arbitrary example, Magnolia stellata 'Alixeed' will be listed in its place under A for Alixeed.

Thus, the 4 pages are divided by cultivar first letter:

In the listing below, I have added the species name where relevant. So if you're interested in cultivars of a particular species, they are also all listed together. 

I am still working on this complete re-vamp of the Magnolia section of our website. The first step was to up-date the basic listing to make sure that it  includes all the cultivars currently in production. If everything grows to plan, we will have a fantastic range of cultivars available in 3 litre pots in the autumn. We will be offering many of these for the first time and they are indicated as such in the description. My current task is to up-date all the descriptions. There are so many to add that this is inevitably a massive task. I will be working on it in the evenings as and when I can, periodically up-loading the up-dated pages. And then of course I will be adding photos too... 

In time, I will link the names below to the appropriate entry and I will also put together pages for the main species, so that it will be possible to see the photos and descriptions of all the cultivars of Magnolia stellata for example, on the same page. Similarly, I will group all the yellow flowered cultivars together and there will be another page for summer flowering cultivars and another one for evergreens...etc...etc. So there's lots for me to do! Much of this will have to wait until next winter though. In the meanwhile, the 4 page complete alphabetical list by cultivar will have to suffice!

Magnolia availability at present is a little patchy, confined as it currently is to more mature specimens. Feel free to email at to discuss the current situation if you're interested in a larger, more mature specimen. If you're overwhelmed by the selection, then feel free to describe the visual effect you would like to achieve, listing as many criteria as possible, and I'm happy to make some suggestions and recommendations accordingly. If you would prefer something younger, so smaller and less costly, then the best thing to do will be to email me in the autumn when the new crop will be ready.
