Special Species

The Magnolia 'Black Tulip' is a relatively new and perhaps one of the most remarkable magnolia species. This magnolia stands out thanks to its beautiful purple flowers resembling tulips.


We also offer the Magnolia 'Black Tulip' in a multi-stemmed form.



This magnolia blooms before the large, green foliage appears on the shrub. With stunning, large, cup-shaped flowers that are burgundy to purple in color. The flower seems to have a black glow from the inside. The flower shape closely resembles that of a tulip, which is why the shrub is also called a false tulip tree.


Growth Habit

The Magnolia 'Black Tulip' blooms at a young age and remains relatively small, with a maximum mature height of 6 to 8 meters as a tree. In a multi-stemmed/shrub form, it will remain smaller. Of course, keeping it smaller is also possible, as the Magnolia tolerates pruning well.


How to plant the tree?

  1. Determine the final location of the tree and ensure it is free from cables, debris, old plants, and other obstacles that may hinder the tree's growth.
  2. Dig a planting hole that is twice the width of the root ball. Loosen the soil at the bottom of the planting hole and mix the excavated soil with (organic) garden soil or planting substrate.
  3. Adjust the planting hole to the height where the root ball fits and firmly press the soil.
  4. Fill the planting hole with water and wait for it to settle. Check if the root ball is sufficiently moist.
  5. Place the tree or plant in the planting hole. It is extremely important that the tree is not planted too deep, as this can cause root rot.
  6. Insert a tree stake or bamboo stake firmly into the ground on the side of the tree where the most wind comes from.
  7. Now, place the watering ring or create a mound of soil around the tree so that water can seep into the ground.
