Description

The Southern Magnolia is the quintessential southern tree. As beautiful as it is strong, this large evergreen deserves to be admired.

Enormous, white blooms burst open in spring and summer unleashing the tantalizing, sweet aroma of the Magnolia. Deep green leaves shine in the southern sun. Peek underneath and you will find these leaves velvety and rusty brown. What a unique look! Red seeds and fuzzy cream to pink seed pods add color, depth and interest.

Low maintenance and adaptable, you won't need to break your back to enjoy the Southern Magnolia. This magnificent tree is pest, disease, and deer resistant as well as salt and pollution tolerant. Water your newly planted Magnolia deeply 2-3 times per week for the first few months. Once your tree is established it will be drought tolerant.

How To Care

Spring or fall are the best times for planting. If you live in an area with mild summers or mild winters you should be fine to plant at these times. Follow the recommendations below to choose the best location for your new Magnolia.

The Southern Magnolia performs best in full to part sun. Magnolias are very adaptable; soil can be anything from clay to sand to loam, but be sure it is moist and drains well. Be sure the planting site doesn’t hold water. This can drown the roots which can cause root rot and ultimately the death of your tree. When your tree is newly planted, water deeply 2 to 3 times per week. You want to maintain this schedule for about the first 3 months while your plant is establishing. After this time your Magnolia will be quite drought tolerant and only need watering once weekly in summer. Mulching is a good option especially with a newly planted Magnolia. 2-3 inches of mulch will keep your soil moist and cool. It also keeps weeds and grasses at bay. Weeds and grass can steal nutrients and water from your tree. Fertilize with a balanced, slow release fertilizer in early spring. If pruning is necessary, prune right after flowering has stopped to best avoid trimming off next year's flowers.

The Magnolia arrived in excellent condition!! My only complaint is it did not arrive with planting instructions, especially that it was gift. Otherwise, looking forward to seeing this beautiful tree grow to its magnificence!
