If you've been avoiding saucer magnolias because they tend to bloom so early that they can be frostbitten, this is the one for you. It is the most reliable reblooming saucer magnolia—so even if there's some frostbite on the early spring blooms, you won't miss the show. First, you'll enjoy the traditional flush of early spring blooms, lightly fragrant and cup–shaped. Then, like magic, Genie will keep delivering new batches of blooms through June, July, maybe even August. All it needs is plenty of sunshine and water. The blooms attract butterflies in the garden and are beautiful as cut flowers in the home. Bred in New Zealand. Magnolia 'Genie'
