"It's so.... floriferous!" We agree whole-heartedly with this opinion, expressed by one of our visitors on seeing Magnolia stellata in its full glory. As the flowers of the magnificent Magnolia denudata by the Danby Arch fade, M. stellata and the 93 year old M. x soulangeana come into their own. In the sunshine they are both looking stunning. But they are not alone in their floriferousness. An extravagance of jolly tulips are open across the herbaceous border.
