Order today!How to Use Royal Star Magnolia in the LandscapeRoyal Star is a superb flowering shrub for many landscape applications. It is a perfect specimen plant to anchor a foundation planting. Place it at least 10 feet from your house, so you can easily access the exterior, even when the shrub is mature.Angle it out from the corner to accent your home's architecture or use closer to the picture window to provide a bit of screening. That's especially true if you have a picture window to study the early spring flower show from inside your snug and warm home.Use 3 or 5 of these in a berm or lawn planting. Plant them in a loose zig-zag and vary the spacing - from 10 - 25 feet apart - to create a wonderful, natural woodland look. If you want each to shine as an individual, give them at least 20 feet between their neighbor.This plant is also great on the edge of a woodland garden. It looks fantastic when planted next to a pond or waterway.Royal Star is extremely versatile. Lower branches can be pruned up into a high canopy, single trunk tree, or grow it as a pretty and effective privacy screen.Keep it unpruned to use as a low-maintenance, large shrub. Plant them 8 feet apart (measuring from the center of one to the center of the next.) Allow them to fill in naturally to create a marvelous freeform "friendly fence" hedge along your property line. It will wow your neighbors every spring!Another way to use this special kind of hedge is within your own landscape. Create a secret garden room with walls made out of Royal Star Magnolia. Give yourself a little space of your own to get lost in. People are loving Meditation Gardens, outdoor Yoga studios, or just a comfy place to cozy up with a good book and a small pitcher of your favorite adult beverage.#ProPlantTips for CareThe Royal Star Magnolia grows in either full sun or part shade. It requires well-drained soil. If you see puddles that remain after a rain in the area you want to plant it, just "mound up". Add additional soil in a mounded heap 18 - 24 inches above your soil. You'll plant directly into the mound.It loves organically rich, well-drained soil. In warm, dry climates, you'll ideally want to check your soil pH and amend as needed to reach between 6 - 7. In areas with higher pH, plant where it will receive morning sun and give protection from the hot afternoon sun. Fertilize yearly with Dr. Earth Acid Lovers Premium Fertilizer to help maintain proper pH.Give it a nice layer of mulch 3 to 4 inches deep and spread it to 3 feet outside of the canopy of the shrub. Please don't let the mulch touch the trunk.The Royal Star Magnolia has no serious disease or pest problems and requires little pruning to get its great structure. It's amenable to any pruning you choose to provide.Water carefully at the start. You don't want to overwater, but you shouldn't let it dry out. The best way to see if your new plant needs water is by poking your finger in the ground. If it's getting dry, give it a nice long drink. If it's moist, no need to add any more water.Even after they are established in your soil, baby it a bit. Magnolias love the warm weather but need a drink when it starts to get dry, especially in hot climates.You'll be happy to provide that tender loving care to this wonderful shrub.

Plants can also be considered single stem when lower branches are removed to raise the height of the branching to a more desired height.

They are referred to as shrubs or bushes and are often shorter than their tree forms.
