Magnolia ×soulangeana 'Dolly Horn'

Flowers initially goblet-shaped, mauvish pink but paler than the parent, white inside and spreading at maturity. In about 1975 Mrs Dolly Horn of Leongatha North pollinated m. campbellii × m. soulangeana 'Lennei' with pollen from m. × soulangeana 'Lennei'. (Rodney Emmer­son, pers. comm.). A plant was grown from seed to flowering in September 1983 by Rodney Emmerson. Blue ribbon prizes were awarded to the flowers on two occasions at the Ferny Creek Horticultural Society and it has since passed into commerce although unregistered in early 1995. Summer flowers are produced but are not of the same quality as the spring ones.
