BEAUTIFUL PINK FLOWERS LOAD THIS SMALL TREE IN EARLY SPRING!
As beautiful as the Ann Magnolia tree’s blooms are, it’s a great addition to your landscape even when it’s not in season as the ornamental tree maintains an attractive mounded shape all year round! The ann magnolia bush, also called ann saucer magnolias or lily magnolias, is one of our favorites that flourishes across the United States.
How Fast Do Ann Magnolia Trees Grow?
Ann magnolias grow at a slow to moderate rate and can increase in height by 13 to 24 inches every year. You can help an Ann magnolia tree grow faster by adding mulch, like shredded bark or straw, to help keep the roots cool and encourage growth.
Is Ann Magnolia Evergreen?
Ann magnolia is not evergreen. Actually, Ann magnolia trees are deciduous although they do bloom later than other varieties of magnolia, which helps the flower buds avoid damage in the cold winter.
When Does Ann Magnolia Bloom?
Ann Magnolias usually bloom mid to late March. Ann Star Magnolia Trees have goblet-shaped flowers that are lightly fragrant and may periodically repeatedly bloom in mid-summer. Purple-red flowers appear even during early spring frosts! The flower blossoms have 7-9 petals. The medium green leaves unfurl and turn yellow in fall before shedding for winter. Ann magnolia’s fall color is another appeal to growers in colder states with a more prominent winter.
When To Plant Ann Magnolia Tree
The best time to plant Ann magnolia trees is in late fall or winter, if you're in a warmer climate, or early spring. Plant these purple flowering magnolia when they are dormant to avoid damaging them.

Ann Magnolia vs Jane Magnolia

Great plant! Thanks for sending it.
Thank you for your kind words and your Ann Magnolia Tree purchase.
Healthy Ann Magnolia arrived fast
Received my Ann Magnolia plant and fertilizer within 4 days. Packed safely, received potting soil mix the day before. I'm impressed by the very healthy plant I received. I planted it late afternoon, followed your detailed directions online and watered it after putting mulch to help retain moisture. Looking forward to seeing it grow and bloom. Will recommend Perfect Plants to anyone asking me where to purchase plants. (Also pleased that you're a family business; and in Florida -- shorter distance for my plants to ship!)
Hi Liz, Thank you for the purchase of our Ann Magnolia Tree and for the honest review. We're very grateful for the support of our family-owned business. Best, Shirley
Purchased Two Ann Magnolias
I received my two 3.5 foot tall magnolias about six weeks ago - they were securely packed and arrived healthy and in good condition with several buds on each plant. I planted them immediately, and they buds continued to swell and then began to open in about two weeks. about two weeks later, the plants began to leaf, and they are now covered with foliage. The plants are thriving so far, and I am happy with my purchase.
Wow, we are thrilled to hear how well everything went with your Ann Magnolia Tree order. We strive at providing the best service out there and glad it showed. Wish you all the best.
Excellent. I was concerned with white substance on my Ann magnolia and customer service was great. I was horrified to see all the beautiful green leaves fall of in winter and just a bunch of sticks coming out of the ground. But then, early March these “sticks” began to bloom. All three produced gorgeous flowers and continue to this day. Absolutely gorgeous and I was ready to chuck them! Be patient people. These are high quality plants and the customer service is great. I would order more if I only had room haha.
Hey Tanya, Thank you so much for taking the time and leaving your honest review on your experience with our Ann Magnolias. It's a pleasure to know that your plants are doing great and that you are satisfied with their growth. The best thing to give plants besides water, sun, and soil is definitely patience. Best, Shirley
I ordered an Anna Magnolia from Perfects Plants. At first I received the wrong tree but Mrs. Shirley made things right. She was very nice and I ended up with a beautiful tree. It is blooming right now! I would buy another tree from Perfect Plants.
Hi Carl, Thank you for being such an amazing customer, it's always pleasure working with people like you. We hope to see you back soon and hope that your Ann Magnolia (and other trees) will grow healthy and beautiful. Best, Shirley
