The Little Girl series hybrid magnolias are amongst the most common deciduous lily trees and shrubs. This cold hardy, late bloomer Jane Japanese Magnolia will awe you with its striking color. Even when it’s not in season, the Jane magnolia tree maintains an attractive shape all year around!
Jane Magnolia has abundant, long-lasting flower buds – fragrant with showy color. With the Jane you have the glory of a saucer magnolia without the need for extensive space or care. Mostly noted for its compact shrubby habit, slightly fragrant reddish-purple tulip-shaped flowers, this magnolia blooms in the Spring and throughout the summer. Jane Magnolia is a slow-growing, deciduous shrub/small tree that will typically rise to be over 10 feet tall and up to 15 feet and 8-10 feet wide. Medium 6 inch leathery, dark-green leaves prepare the Jane for summer, turning a lovely copper-yellow in the fall.
The Jane Magnolia does best in widely adaptable, well drained soils and in full sun to partial shade. This is a late-spring blooming magnolia so it’s less apt to suffer frost damage in spring. The moderately slow growth rate of this tree makes it a great front yard tree. Prefers slightly acidic soil.
Planting the spring flowering Jane magnolia 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. Will help with pest and diseases such as powdery mildew as the magnolia grows. This Magnolia lilliflora prefers USDA growing zones 4-8.
