Which tree offers the best privacy from nosy neighbours?

  • A recent introduction to the Australian market the Magnolia Greenback is a perfect uniform tree with dense foliage guaranteed to create a screen between neighbouring properties.
  • Growing to a maximum height of 10 metres the tree also produces beautiful creamy white flowers with a lemon fragrance during the summer months.
  • An incredibly adaptable tree that will thrive in most situations as it shows brilliant heat tolerance once established.
  • This variety grows best in full sun with moist, acidic, well-drained soil.
