Lightly fragrant, large chalice shaped flowers are purplish pink on the outside and a lighter lavender on the inside and are produced about two weeks later than the Star and Tulip Magnolias reducing its chances of getting bit by freezes and hard frosts. Ann is one of the 'Little Girl' series developed at the US National Arboretum through the breeding work of Francis De Vos and William Kosar. This deciduous Magnolia develops into a small tree or large shrub growing as wide as high and this hybrid may also produce a few flowers in summer and produces yellow fall color.
Provide Magnolias with a well-drained, moderately fertile, average moist, acidic soil and an organic mulch for the best results.
