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 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.
