Another rare magnolia is this cross between magnolia acuminata var. subcordata “Miss Honeybee” and magnolia stellata. It gained flower shape fro stellata and colour from acuminate.

Goldstar has medium sized flowers with 14 narrow petals, very similar to star-shaped magnolias. The colour is a delicate creamy-yellow and as the shrub flowers abundantly it brings a little bit of spring sunshine to your awakening garden. The flowers come out about a week or two later than stellata types.

Deciduous leaves are obovate, mid to deep green, bronze when young. Some say this magnolia has prettier leaves than flowers, some even claim this variety has the most beautiful leaves of all deciduous magnolias. It grows slowly or moderately, first forming a V-shaped shrub, growing wider with age.

The best place to plant it is in front of an evergreen hedge or dense and large conifers where it can make a superb display of its delicately coloured flowers on bare branches. It is ideal as a free-standing specimen or sensitively situated in a group of compact conifers of Japanese style and / or other, smaller growing magnolias of red or purple colours.

Magnolias are not supposed to be pruned. You can prune old shrubs if ill, or trim them to shape or to reduce size, or make an elementary cut to young plants of unsightly or unhealthy appearance. Do this as soon as possible after flowering to secure setting of flower buds for the following year. Be aware that each magnolia can respond differently to pruning.

Deciduous magnolias are quite easy plants. All they need is light, well-drained, acidic soil with equal moisture throughout the year. Once established they can do with occasional drought but will not look as nice as the ones with regular watering. Just pay attention to how to plant your magnolia. First, find it a spot where it will live forever and ever. It does not like transplanting. And as it makes shallow roots reaching well over its spread stay away from disturbing the roots by digging or messing about around it. Just cover the soil with bark mulch and do not plant anything else near it after say the second year after planting onwards. You could damage the very important top roots that absorb maximum moisture and nutrients from the soil. Also avoid planting magnolia too deep. Thus you could be digging its grave. It is fully hardy to USDA zone 5. Just make sure it is not in a too exposed windy area. We still recommend mulching it well to keep it moist in any season.
