Magnolia can be deciduous or evergreen trees or shrubs, with large, showy, fragrant flowers, often opening before the leaves, and sometimes followed by colourful cone-like fruit clusters.
These evergreen shrubs and deciduous trees and certain deciduous shrubs need very little pruning and are best left to their own devices in most cases. They do not send out vigorous shoots that need curbing. Remove diseased , damaged congested or crossing shoots. Shoots that are growing in unwanted directions can also be pruned out. Do this in late winter or early spring, unless late summer or early autumn pruning is specified to avoid bleeding and facilitate rapid healing of cut surfaces. These plants flower on previous or current year's growth.
