Description

Magnolia 'Blue Opal' is an unsual form of Magnolia with blue-hued buds that open to large, blue-yellow blooms in spring! Once the flowers are pollinated cucumber-shaped fruits which give the tree its common name the Cucumber Tree. Blue Opal begins as a compact shrub but as it matures it does form a medium-sized tree of up to 15m in height and 8m in width. It is a hardy tree but does require a sheltered spot from winds and frost, to protect its flower buds. They prefer well-drained soils with plenty of sunshine.
