When the early-blooming Star Magnolias and Saucer Magnolias have finished blooming (or gotten singed by frost), Jane Magnolia steps into the limelight with a production of her own—scores of five-inch-wide, tulip-shaped purple-pink flowers.  When the show’s over, you’ll be cheering, “Encore, encore!”… and more likely than not, Ms. Jane will oblige, blooming sporadically into summer!  This small hybrid Magnolia tree has a compact, bushy shape, making it effective as a summer privacy screen when grown as part of an unsheared hedge along your property line.  Of course, you can always prune out Jane’s lower side branches and have yourself a trim little specimen tree to showcase in any of the planting beds around your home.

The Story

In the 1950’s two scientists, working at the National Arboretum in Washington worked to create a new variety of Magnolia. Francis de Vos and William Kosar explored transferring pollen from the star Magnolia cultivar to the lily magnolia cultivar and eight very special hybrids were born. Affectionately named the “The Little Girls” series these small wonders were specifically created to bloom 2-4 weeks later, thus reducing the risk of damage to flowers from late spring frosts. The Eight Magnolias were selected and named by Willam Kosar. They are Ann, Betty, Jane, Judy, Pinkie, Randy and Susan. The names honor arboretum secretaries or staff wives and daughters.

The Details

Part of the "Little Girl" series of hybrid Magnolias, Jane blooms later than most. Reddish-purple flowers with white insides appear mid-April to early May. The late bloom time reduces frost damage risk. Foliage emerges shortly after blooms with coppery-red tints. In summer leaves darken to glossy green and shows hints of bronze-copper in fall. 

How to Grow

Jane is a pretty easygoing gal.  This tree wants sun all day and good air circulation.  It’s not too particular about soil type as long as it’s well-drained.  We recommend planting all trees two inches above grade, and this is especially important with certain Magnolias, like this one.  This tree is moderate in its water needs and appreciates a drink once a week, but no standing water, thank you.  Jane blooms at the same time as Butterflies Magnolia, Weeping Cherry, and many Crabapples—all of which make lovely companions.
