The result of 15 years of breeding, Magnolia ‘Genie’ is a compact, small tree maturing at 10 to 13 feet tall. This novel little dark beauty has a multi-branched, small bushy habit with sensational black-red buds opening to small tulip-shaped blooms of deep rich maroon-purple on both surfaces. The flowers have nicely reflexed tepal tips paling to a lighter magenta rose shade. ‘Genie’ has lightly scented blooms from early spring to early summer, and in mid- to late summer where conditions are not too dry.
