Sizing guide

Magnolia grandiflora 'Alta', also known as Southern Magnolia, is an elegant evergreen tree known for its dense, upright growth habit and large, fragrant white flowers. 'Alta' typically grows to a height of 6-9 meters with a spread of 2-3 meters, making it ideal for small spaces and narrow landscapes. The tree’s glossy, dark green leaves provide year-round interest.

To grow Magnolia grandiflora 'Alta' in Melbourne or Sydney, choose a sunny to partially shaded location with well-draining, slightly acidic soil. This tree prefers a sheltered spot, protected from strong winds. Water regularly during the establishment phase, and mulch around the base to retain moisture and suppress weeds. Once established, 'Alta' is moderately drought-tolerant but will benefit from occasional deep watering during extended dry periods. 

Prune lightly after flowering to maintain shape and remove any dead or damaged branches. Fertilize annually with a balanced, slow-release fertilizer to promote healthy growth. With proper care, Magnolia grandiflora 'Alta' will thrive, providing beautiful flowers and year-round greenery.

Consider companion planting with Raphiolepsis Oriental Pink, and Dichondra Silver Falls for a stunning visual contrast.
