Magnolia liliflora ‘Jane’ is a beautiful, cold hardy, small flowering magnolia with huge, fragrant pink blooms first thing in the spring. 1It is part of the Little Girl Series created at the National Arboretum in the 1950’s by Francis DeVos and William Kosar who crossed M. liliiflora ‘Nigra’ and M. stellata ‘Rosea’. She displays fast growing branching that is upright when young but spreads as the plant ages. It features unequalled tulip like, deliciously fragrant flowers in late April before leaves appear. Rich purple exteriors frame bright white centers on this bloom not only in spring, but all summer long and even into the fall as ‘Jane’ will surprise you with her charming ways and spontaneous small bursts of blooms even in the off season! Plant ‘Jane’ in a sunny location with some afternoon shade for the best results and you will revel in what an incredible specimen this low branched, spreading tree can be.
