Magnolia - Ann (Japanese)

Magnolia x 'Ann'
USDA Hardiness Zones: 4-8


The Ann Magnolia is a beautiful Japanese Magnolia with purplish-red flowers, resembling a tulip, that bloom in mid-late spring. In cooler areas it blooms toward the end of April and into May, when spring is at its peak. In warmer regions, they will often bloom in March or even in February. After the blooms the tree produces attractive, leathery green, oval foliage which turns yellow in the fall. Grow it as a lawn specimen, among other large shrubs, or beneath deciduous trees. In areas that receive enough moisture, a second bloom in the summer is possible as the Ann Magnolia can produce a smaller batch of flowers in the warmest months of the year. Ann is a member of the "Little Girl" group of hybrid magnolias developed in the mid-50s at the U.S. National Arboretum. Like the Alexandrina, the Ann is deciduous and has a medium growth rate. However, the Ann is smaller than the Alexandrina and a later bloomer – better for the northern gardener or those who could experience a late spring frost. growing to a height and spread of around 10 feet. The Ann is the perfect magnolia for your yard if you desire a small but elegant edition. It is hardy to -20 degrees (Zones 4-8).

How to Plant
STEP 1) First, decide on a planting location. Consider carefully what kind of sun, soil, and growing-space your tree or shrub will need.
STEP 2) Once you've located the perfect spot, the hole you are digging must be at least double the width and as deep as the root system you are planting.
STEP 3) Remove the plant from the pot and place the root ball in the hole. The top of the root system should be level with the ground. Before placing the tree or shrub in the hole, use your hands to gently break up the root system.
STEP 4) Once the plant is in place, backfill the hole with native soil and any leftover potting material.
STEP 5) Pack down the soil to eliminate any air pockets.
STEP 6) When finished, water thoroughly.
Care Guide

Once planted, make a 2-foot-wide, 2" deep circle around the tree with mulch, but leave a 3-4” space between the mulch and the trunk. At the beginning of cold weather, add 2 more inches of mulch for a total of 4", this will help prevent the plants roots from freezing. If the tree is young or you are using it as a shrub, it is recommended to cover the plant during cold weather. Apply an 8-8-8 nitrogen, potassium slow-release fertilizer in late winter before new growth starts at a rate of one pound per 100 square feet of planted area. Do not fertilize until after the tree is well established in its new home. <br><br>
Water once a week with a deep watering until tree is established. A mature tree will have moderate drought-resistance. While Japanese Magnolias can be pruned to shape while young, you should refrain from pruning mature Japanese Magnolias. This tree has no significant pests and diseases.
