General description

General description: The George Henry Kern variety was created by crossing the star magnolia (Magnolia stellata) with the purple magnolia (Magnolia liliflora). It can be planted in groups, but it is best to keep a distance of 4-5 m between seedlings.

Flowers

Flowers: Just before opening, this variety’s buds are elongated, slender, pink and darker at the base, set singly on the tops of short stems. The elegant, beautifully formed flowers consist of 8-10 fleshy, spindle-shaped petals that are pink on the outside, lilac-coloured at the base, and whitish on the inside, with only a slight pink tinge. Inside each flower are numerous stamens and pistils set spirally on the convex flower base.

Blooming

Blooming: George Henry Kern blooms at the turn of April and May, before its leaves appear.

Leaves

Leaves: George Henry Kern has ovate leaves with a smooth margin, set on short petioles. Young leaves are light green but turn darker as they mature, and they remain on the shrub until autumn.

CultivationRequirements

Cultivation requirements: This magnolia likes fertile humus soil that is sufficiently moist but permeable, with a slightly acidic pH. It prefers sunny locations that are sheltered from wind, preferably on the southern sides of buildings or hedges.

Care

Care: After planting, the earth around the shrub should be mulched with conifer bark or peat. This will protect the roots from freezing and the soil dry out more slowly. When choosing a place to plant magnolias, it’s worth remembering that the root system is shallow and roots are very fragile and sensitive to damage, so later replanting of an already growing plant to another place will not be possible.

Pruning

Pruning: Magnolias do not respond well to pruning, they densify poorly, and regrowth is slow. In addition, pruning can reduce flowering for a year or two. Pruning should only be done in certain situations: if a stem breaks, if it gets frostbitten, becomes diseased, or if a shoot is clearly in the way. Pruning should always be conducted after flowering.

Overwintering

Overwintering: George Henry Kern is resistant to frost (hardiness zone 6b). Young magnolias are sensitive to harsh frosts, but older magnolias tolerate them well. For safe and secure flowering, protecting young seedlings before winter by piling a mound of soil and a thick layer of bark or sawdust around the plant’s base is highly recommended and it’s advised to then cover the whole seedling with spruce branches or straw. Older plants do not need this.
