Hot Lips
[M. campbellii, M. sprengeri(?)], cv. (Magnolia 29(2) [Issue 56]: 23, 1994). ‘This plant (Herkenrode inventory reference #86308) was selected by Philippe de Spoelberch and was purchased by him in 1986 from Esveld Nurseries, Boskoop, Netherlands as M. campbellii var. mollicomata. It is presumed to be a hybrid between mollicomata and an unknown selection (possibly M. sprengeri ‘Diva'). It has flowers which are pink on the outside, with a rich maroon midrib, darkening to almost entirely maroon at the base of the tepals. (It was this rich, voluptuous base of the petals that inspired the name ‘Hot Lips'). The inner surfaces of the tepals are pale pink to white. Flower size is similar to that of M. sprengeri ‘Diva', although in the first few years flowers were more sparse, and larger. The leaves are rich green, nearly oval, and can be as large as 23 cm by 23 cm, with petioles 3 cm long, on vigorous terminal branches. It flowers at an early age and is easy to propagate from cuttings. Philippe reports that it flowers with or before M. x proctoriana at Herkenrode.... The original tree reached the same size as a plant of M. ‘Wada's Memory’ (#84573) purchased two years earlier. ‘Hot Lips’ is hardy to zone 7(6). This form was previously mentioned and illustrated in TMS journal issue 54, pages 19 and 21. Registered by Philippe de Spoelberch, Herkenrode, Belgium in November 1993.’
