Special Attributes

A member of the "Little Girl" group of spring-blooming hybrid magnolias developed at the U.S. National Arboretum, the Jane Magnolia is a slow-growing very hardy large shrub or small tree that becomes smothered in stunning, fragrant, reddish-purple flowers before leaves emerge in spring. Jane blooms a bit later that many other deciduous varieties making it a perfect choice where a late frost is common. The large, flowers have 7 to 9 petals that are reddish-purple exteriors and white interiors, resembling tulips perched on the ends of every branch. Depending on the weather and location, flowers buds begin to open in March or April 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 Jane 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

Jane 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.
