Magnolia laevifolia ‘Free Spirit’ full sun  partial shade

Unparalleled among its relations, this recently available exciting evergreen cultivar was discovered as a naturally occurring hybrid in Lytterton, New Zealand. The unique low growing branches craft a horizontally spreading frame attired with handsome polished leathery leaves and a downy-soft, deep copper-hued pubescence that promotes cozy warm accents. Held in an upward-facing fashion, the posh, ambrosial spring-time flowers arrive in long lasting pure white droves and sometimes offer a fall encore. ‘Free Spirit’ effortlessly charms a container, stone wall, slope or patio, savoring well-drained soil, bright dappled shade and shelter from extreme cold. (pp#24,534)

Size: 18"–2' 0" high x 6' 0"–8' 0" wide. Zone 7/8.

Customer Comment:

“I held my breath and opened the box (after a long delay in opening the delivered plants, due to catastrophic flooding), dug down through the damp paper shreds and found all the plants alive!!!! I'm so relieved. I had to write and thank you for the hardiness of the plants, and for packing them so carefully.... Thank you, Digging Dog. I'll be back.”
