Magnolia lilliflora 'Nigra,' commonly known as the Black Lily Magnolia or Purple Magnolia, is a cultivar of the Magnolia lilliflora species. It is highly regarded for its striking, dark purple or burgundy-colored flowers.

The Black Lily Magnolia is a deciduous shrub or small tree that typically reaches a height of 10 to 15 feet (3 to 4.5 meters). It has an upright growth habit and forms a compact, rounded shape. The dark green leaves provide an attractive backdrop for the vibrant flowers.

One of the key features of Magnolia lilliflora 'Nigra' is its stunning flowers. The buds are dark purple and open into large, goblet-shaped blooms. The petals are a deep, rich purple or burgundy color, creating a dramatic contrast against the foliage. These flowers appear in early spring, before the leaves emerge, adding a burst of color to the landscape.

Like other Magnolia varieties, Magnolia lilliflora 'Nigra' prefers well-drained soil and thrives in a location with full sun to partial shade. It is generally low-maintenance and can be grown in gardens or used as a focal specimen plant in small spaces. The Black Lily Magnolia's unique flower color and elegant form make it a popular choice among gardeners looking to add visual interest and a touch of drama to their landscapes. For best results use good quality bark mulch to maintain moist cool roots, and fertilise twice per year.
