Order Ann Magnolia Tree Online


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 Japanese 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 magnolias when they are dormant to avoid damaging them. 


The Ann Magnolia bush is best grown in moist, organically rich, acidic, well-drained soil and in full sun to partial shade. This is a late-blooming magnolia that is less apt to suffer frost damage in spring. It is resistant to pests and diseases.

Grows best in USDA growing zones 4-8 and can be grown across most of the United States. Very cold hardy. Be sure to water well the first year of planting to establish a strong root system. A slow-release fertilizer at the top of the root ball will help in the early spring growing season.

Ann Magnolia vs Jane Magnolia

It is common to mistake the Ann and Jane magnolia as one and the same, but in fact, they differ in a few ways. The Ann Japanese Magnolia tree can live in zones 4-8 while Jane Magnolia lives in zones 4-8. Additionally, the Ann tree has a darker flower color than Jane.

How Big Does An Ann Magnolia Get?

The Ann Magnolia tree is mostly noted for its compact shrubby habit, slightly fragrant deep reddish-purple flowers, and early to late spring blooms. The flowering tree is a slow-growing, deciduous shrub/small tree. The ann magnolia tree size will typically rise to be over 10-12 feet tall and about 10 feet wide as a mature tree. The Ann Magnolia Tree height will vary on pruning patterns and external conditions.

Ann Magnolia Pruning

When pruning your magnolia x ann pink you will need clean, sharp cutters. Start by pruning off any dead or diseased branches. Then shape your tree accordingly to your desired look. It is best to trim your ann magnolia in summer or early fall.

Perfect as in Perfect shipment

I have never received an in-store or online purchase that was handled as well as this company. It was quick and looked like it had just come out of the ground. The description matched the purchase and I couldn't be more pleased.
