Ann Magnolia (Magnolia x 'Ann')
The Ann Magnolia is a member of the 'Little Girl' series of Magnolias that are the result of a cross originally made at the U.S. National Arboretum. Ann develops a somewhat open habit with deep purple-red, 7-9 inch petaled flowers.
Ann Magnolia trees are vigorous and hardy. Best grown in normal garden soil in full sun. This magnolia was bred for late bloom (mid-April to early May) to avoid the hazards of late frost. It forms a shrubby mound and has leathery green foliage. It has lightly scented reddish-purple flowers that emerge from beautiful, tapered buds.
There is often sporadic repeat bloom in mid-summer. The flowers are large and red-purple on both sides.
