magnolia laevifolia 'snowbird'

klew(Z7b/8, NE PDX, OR)April 27, 2012

Formerly M. dianica 'Snowbird', even more formerly Michelia yunnanensis 'Snowbird'

Want to move 3' tall, 5 year-old shrub. I'd appreciate thoughts on when, how, things to watch out for. If I don't move it, this lovely lady will be living behind the compost bin, hidden from view & from sun.

Currently quite healthy & lusciously flowering it's little heart out.

Thanks, as always.

Try in August or September after the new shoots have stopped growing.

I moved my much larger (10-foot) Little Gem, another evergreen magnolia, two autumns ago. It took last year off, but is looking good so far this year. You shouldn't have to damage nearly as many roots as I did.
