Magnolia grandiflora 'Exmouth'

('Lanceolata', 'Exoniensis') Habit narrow and upright, almost fastigiate, leaves narrow, less rusty below than in typical form. Raised Exmouth, Devonshire, England in the 18th century by Sir John Colliton; flowers said to be extremely large with 18 segments appearing very early. Plants grown under this name in Australia are probably a different but meritorious compact clone with dark leaves, rusty below and flowering when young.
