This is one of the most spectacular of the spring-flowering trees and one of the easiest to grow. During winter its bare branches are covered with large tulip-like flowers, rose-pink outside and white inside. Prefers a rich acid soil. Rustica Rubra is the best flowering magnolia for subtropical climates.

Question & Answer
How do I keep it alive and healthy in the pot From: POINT LOOKOUT QLD
In a pot it is important that the soil is well drained so when you water it the water can saturate it but then slowly but completely drain out of the pot. This will ensure the roots can get oxygen and not have "Wet Feet". Once a day should be fine when it is young. If you can put it in a place where it get's full sun but especially morning sun that would be best.
