A full grown Jane Magnolia is a slow-growing, deciduous shrub/small tree that will typically rise to be over 8 feet and up to 10 feet tall and 8 to 10 feet wide. Medium 6 inch leathery, dark-green leaves prepare the magnolia x Jane for summer, turning a lovely copper-yellow in the fall.
Jane Magnolia Care
The Jane Magnolia shrub does best in widely adaptable, well drained soils and in full sun to partial shade. This is a late-spring blooming magnolia variety making it a perfect choice where you are less apt to suffer frost damage in spring where late spring frosts are common. The flower buds will appear in early spring and begin to open the cup shaped flowers when the weather begins to warm.
The moderately slow growth rate of this flowering tree makes it a great front yard tree. Prefers slightly acidic soil. To enhance the variation of flower colors, the addition of acidic sulfur or peat moss can help.
Planting the spring flowering Jane magnolia shrub is easy. We ship our plants rooted in soil in containers. When the tree arrives, loosen the soil around the root ball to encourage new root growth. Dig a hole and place the plant down to the top of the root. Plant your Jane Magnolia and cover with soil and mulch appropriately to help retain moisture. These are not bare root trees.
Be sure to water well the first year of planting to establish a strong root system. Can benefit from the addition of slow release fertilizer once a year which will help with pest and diseases such as powdery mildew as the magnolia grows. Prune the Jane Magnolia in late winter or early spring.
This Magnolia lilliflora prefers growing across the United States in USDA growing zones 4-8.
