Special Attributes

A member of the "Little Girl" group of hybrid magnolias developed at the U.S. National Arboretum, the Ann Magnolia is a slow-growing very hardy large shrub or small tree that becomes smothered in stunning, fragrant, pinkish-purple color flowers before leaves emerge in spring. Ann Magnolia blooms a bit later that many other varieties making it a perfect choice where a late frost is common. The flowers have 7 to 9 petals that are light pinkish-purple on the inside and resemble tulips perched on the ends of every branch. Flowers begin to appear in March with sporadic re-bloom through summer. The large, elongated leaves are dark green with a somewhat leathery appearance, which contrasts nicely with other landscape plants that have finer foliage.

Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing upright to 12 to 15 feet tall and wide, the Ann Magnolia is ideal for use as a larger specimen shrub or small tree in landscape and sunny woodland borders or to frame corners or against a large open wall in home foundation plantings. Can also be grown in large pots, planters and containers of 18 inches or more in rim diameter. A fine addition to the cut flower or cottage garden. 

Cultural Preferences

Ann Magnolia is easy to grow in most any moist but well-drained acidic soil of average fertility and full sun to part shade. She prefers full sun for best flowering, however will handle some partial shade. In the South, some shade during the hottest mid-afternoon hours of summer will be appreciated. Avoid constantly soggy or wet soils. In alkaline soils, apply soil sulfur and/or chelated iron to increase acidity. Pruning usually isn't necessary, however stray or damaged branches can be pruned immediately after flowering in spring. Feed after flowering in spring with a mild organic plant food or a well-balanced shrub and tree food containing iron or sulfur.
