TREES

Magnolia x liliiflora 'Jane' - is a large, dense and shrubby small tree loaded with large spring vase-shaped flowers that look like tulips. Standing erect on ends of stems violet red- purple flowers from 5 to 7 inches in height blossom from pointed buds in April in northeastern Connecticut. This lovely tree can produce 2 more recurrent flowering periods during the summer. Of course, the initial bloom is the heaviest. Semi-glossy paddle-shaped leaves remain clean-looking and attractive all season long. They may pick up some nice yellow tones in autumn before they drop. This is one among the "little girl" series made from the parents, M. liliiflora 'Nigra' and M. stellata 'Rosea'. We do believe this to be 'Jane' as they are unfortunately very confused in the trade. However, regardless of confusion, this is a beautiful small shrubby tree attractive in all seasons. Cutting grown.

Genus Overview: Magnolia

Common Name: Magnolia

The Magnolias are one of the earliest known flowering plants to establish themselves on our beautiful planet. Much breeding continues and the cultivar list is expanding with some smaller sizes and new flower colors. Many are typical tree forms while some tend to be multi-stemmed – more like huge shrubs than single-stemmed trees. Most are spring blooming – some early, others later after danger of frost has passed in the north. A few of these will provide some recurrence of bloom during the summer. A handful bloom in summer. Many emit wonderful fragrance. The foliage is often large, bold and paddle-shaped, looking attractive in summer; a handful of species’ leaves are so large that they are reminiscent of banana foliage. Some seasons they develop gold to golden brown autumn color before the leaves drop. It’s hard for me to think of a landscape without one or more included in the mix. All prefer fertile deep loam with plenty of organic matter and moist soils – some are even content in relatively wet conditions. Magnolias should be sited in full to half sun exposures. All our selections are cutting grown, on their own wood – they are not grafted. Some are much easier to produce on their own wood than others; some are quite recalcitrant. In that, we may not always have certain plants available or available in great numbers. Spring planting is recommended for magnolias especially up north. Cutting grown.
