Spring has not finished trumpeting its arrival until the Ann Magnolia tree has bloomed! Its deep pink, purple-red blossoms resembling tulips produce delightful bursts of vibrant color against a green landscape. These beautiful shrubs are easily maintained as small trees and a staple to celebrate spring. Blooms late-April to early-May and may have sporadic rebloom in summer. Leaves are dark green and somewhat leathery in appearance. Full sun is the ideal condition for this shrubby tree, meaning it should get at least 6 hours of direct, unfiltered sunlight each day but avoid warm southern exposures which may promote premature bud opening in spring. ‘Ann’ also appreciates a location protected from strong winds, The Ann magnolia is a member of the “Little Girl” group of hybrid magnolias developed in the mid-50s at the U.S. National Arboretum.
