The bijou garden beauty!

Μια εξαιρετική  και από τις πιο όμορφες ποικιλίες Μανόλιας με ισχυρούς βλαστούς, ασυναγώνιστη διπλή ανθοφορία και μέγεθος που χωράει σε κάθε κήπο!

Χρειάστηκαν 15 χρόνια βελτίωσης και δοκιμών με διασταυρώσεις μεταξύ των M. soulangeana και M. liliflora.

Υπέροχα και μεγάλα βαθύ-κόκκινα άνθη που δε ξεθωριάζουν και φύλλα βαθυπράσινα και μικρότερου μεγέθους από τις άλλες ποικιλίες.

Ανθίζει πάνω στα γυμνά κλαδιά αρχές Άνοιξης και δίνει δεύτερη ανθοφορία το Καλοκαίρι.

Πυραμοειδής ανάπτυξη, ιδανική και για μικρούς κήπους καθώς φτάνει το ύψος των 3 μέτρων μετά από 10 χρόνια.



Magnolia Genie is the result of 15 years breeding in a line of Magnolia soulangeana and Magnolia liliiflora which has resulted in a compact, small tree which will reach 3 meters in 10 years.

The high proportion of liliiflora-genes guaranties a very stable red colour compared to some other red Magnolias on the market.

The foliage is smaller and rich dark green showing some resemblance to Magnolia 'Leaf Spot'.

The growth habit is pyramidal with layers of blooming branches produced with age.

Plant it in full sun in a moist, fertile, well-drained soil.

This Magnolia is very suitable for the smaller gardens, for landscaping or as a street tree. Hardy to about -15 ºC.

Genie’ is an innovation in various areas.

Its growth habit is very dense and compact. This means that ‘Genie’ remains a shrub rather than a tree.

Its main blooming period is spring, but even after that ‘Genie’ continuous produces flowers in summer. This gives this variety long-lasting ornamental value, especially in comparison to other Magnolia cultivars.

Its flower buds appear after winter, so they don’t suffer from frostbite. Even if the spring bloom is affected by night frost, ‘Genie’ continues to flower in summer.

‘Genie’ has cup-shaped and warm, burgundy flowers. Its leaves are healthy and dark green.

Being awarded a Gold Medal by the KVBC means that ‘Genie’ has proven its value as one of the best cultivars in the Magnolia assortment. ‘Genie’ is protected by Plant Breeders’ Rights.



The complex family heritage of this new variety needs some explaining..
Magnolia ‘Genie’ is the result of 12 years of breeding, over two generations of family. This was all carried out meticulously by Vance Hooper in New Zealand.
The two grandfathers of the family bring the colour; thank you to ‘Black Tulip’ and liliiflora ‘Nigra’! Magnolia ‘Genie’ also shares a common grandmother on both sides in the variety ‘Sweet Simplicity’, which was discovered as a wrongly labelled, starving root bound plant in a garden centre, but it had the selling point of two flower buds. A key link in the genetic profile of ‘Genie’!
The pollen parent is ‘Sweet Valentine’, and the seed parent is a sister to ‘Old Port’… I hope you’re keeping up! This family has also given birth to ‘Cameo’ and ‘Cleopatra’ on one side of the family, and ‘Old Port’ on the other.
As soon as ‘Genie’ flowered, Vance started grafting it onto strong rootstock. Amazingly, after just 2 years from seed, ‘Genie’ was producing five flower buds per plant, at just 70cm tall! The following year it had about 100 flowers! The seed prodigy from this was sown in 2000 and the first release in New Zealand was in 2006, with a crop of about 1600 field budded plants.
