White Fairy Magnolia® by Anthony Tesselaar Plants is a rare, beautiful, white magnolia suited for outdoor gardens or containers. Bred by Mark Jury, its relatively small size and blissful white blooms make it a popular choice for enhancing the beauty of an outdoor space. A hardy evergreen, White Fairy Magnolia® can also be used as a privacy hedge, creating an attractive and fragrant barrier.

Grows smaller and bushier than most other magnolias.

Branches produce blooms on the tips and along the sides!

Perfect as a container plant, especially in zones too cold for outdoor planting! To create feature containers, plant these magnolias to form a spectacular canopy over a mixed understory of grasses, perennials and season annuals and bulbs!

No major issues with pests or disease! 

Low-maintenance and drought resistant! 

Plant 3' apart when using to form a hedge.


White Fairy Magnolia® Care

Requires full sun to partial shade. Insufficient light will cause growth issues and leaf spotting. 

Attempt to keep its soil slightly moist but not wet. Although it will handle drier conditions, it's suggested to water this magnolia in times of drought.

If growing as a container plant in zones colder than 7b, it's suggested to prevent exposing this plant to temperatures below 15°F by bringing it into a protected, heated area. 

Plant in well draining soil. Do not plant in areas prone to waterlogging! 

Year round fertilization is suggested if planting in containers. Ground planted magnolias should be given fertilizer after spring flowering has ended. Our slow release fertilizer is a great option.  

Trim to shape as required, and to encourage a bushy growth habit. It's suggested to do most of your heavy trimming shortly after spring flowering has ended.
