This pure white magnolia is hard to beat, the glorious floral display begins in earnest during mid-spring and will continue to delight until midsummer. The simple flowers contrast beautifully with the bare stems when they first emerge, before the dark-green leaves begin to take over in late May.
Compared to many other magnolias, 'Merrill' is more tolerant of alkaline soils and is best grown as as a stunning multi-stem shrub.
Perfect for a small garden, Merrill will eventually reach a height of around 5 metres if left to its own devices.
