Magnolia ‘Tropicana’ in full flower

Charles Williams at Caerhays shows us the lovely and unusual Magnolia ‘Tropicana’. It is a very unusual green/yellow and pink flowered hybrid between an American acuminata ‘Fertile Myrtle’ and a Chinese sprengeri ‘Divi’.

We ran a competition a couple of years ago because we thought it was worth naming and the winning name was ‘Tropicana’, which has now been registered.
