Magnolia x 'Ann'
|Description||Flowers later than the star magnolia and thus avoids frost damage to the flower buds. Exquisite, 3 to 4 inch blooms, reddish purple outside and white inside, appear before the foliage buds out. A spectacular specimen or accent. Deciduous.|
|Watering||Once established, water deeply when dry.|
|Mature Size||Slow growing 10 to 15 ft. tall and 12 ft. wide.|
|Design Ideas||A perfectly sized smaller tree with high visual appeal for front yard foundation planting. Use against evergreens in more expansive beds or create a centerpiece for a luscious perennial garden. Exquisite flowers are more appreciated when located beside outdoor living areas, terrace and patio.|
|Companion Plants||This sweet little magnolia deserves equally elegant companions such as Cheerful Giant Azalea, (Azalea x 'Cheerful Giant'), Nuccio's Gem Camellia, (Camellia japonica 'Nucio's Gem'), Nellie Mosier Clematis, (Clematis x 'Nellie Mosier') and Queen of Pearls Hydrangea, (Hydrangea macrophylla 'Hymmadi').|
|Care||Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Watering can be reduced after establishment. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring.|
|Lore||The Chinese magnolias were first introduced in France via Jesuit botanists, where much of the early breeding began.|
