magnolia tree

Soil: Magnolias appreciate fairly rich, well-drained, neutral to slightly acid soil amended with plenty of organic matter at planting time.
The best soil for magnolias is fairly rich, well drained, and neutral to slightly acid; if necessary, add generous amounts of organic matter when planting.
Related to these, but less tolerant of winter cold and summer heat, are the spectacular magnolias from western China and the Himalayas―Sargent magnolia (M.
Magnolia trees are diverse in leaf shape and plant form, and they include both evergreen and deciduous sorts.
Most magnolias are excellent lawn trees; try to provide a good-size grass-free area around the trunk, and don’t plant under the tree.
Pruning: For deciduous magnolias, best time is after bloom; for evergreen kinds, do the job before the spring growth flush.
Less widely planted―but deserving of greater attention―is a group of large-leafed native magnolias generally grown as bold accents or shade trees.
Small deciduous magnolias show up well in large flower or shrub borders and make choice ornaments in Asian-style gardens.
Larger deciduous sorts are most attractive standing alone against a background that will display their flowers at bloom time and show off their strongly patterned, usually gray limbs and big, fuzzy flower buds in winter.
Whether evergreen or deciduous, most magnolias have large, striking blossoms composed of petal-like segments.

The "Little Gem" evergreen magnolia is a dwarf version of the Magnolia grandiflora, also called the Southern Magnolia, but the Little Gem Magnolia produces many more flowers over a more extended period of time than the Giant Magnolia tree.
Most magnolias are cold hardy, evergreen, and the very large green leaves produce a dense shade, and the Japanese magnolias like the saucer magnolias are covered up with multi-colored flowers.

As part of your magnolia tree care, you’ll need to water the trees to keep the soil around the base of the tree moist.
Many people remove the lower limbs of a magnolia tree to facilitate mowing, but if you leave the lower limbs on the tree they will drape to the ground, hiding the fallen leaves.
One of the difficulties of magnolia tree care is managing the large, crispy leaves that continuously fall from the tree.
Magnolia planting is best done in a moist, rich, slightly acidic soil that is amended with compost or leaf mold will get the tree off to a good start.
Magnolia tree bark and wood are easily damaged by flying debris from a lawn mower and by string trimmers.

Magnolia grandiflora is a broadleaf evergreen tree that is noted for its attractive dark green leaves and its large, extremely fragrant flowers.
Like the sassy female characters in the 1989 movie, Steel Magnolias, this Southeastern native with big, glossy leaves and fragrant flowers combines both beauty and strength.

Evergreen magnolias such as southern magnolia, Magnolia grandiflora and sweetbay magnolia, Magnolia virginiana are best planted in early spring.
The southern magnolia is such a large tree for the average home garden.
Magnolias are some of the most primitive of all flowering plants, but the seeds are enclosed in the fruit during their development, and therefore they must be classified as angiosperms, not as gymnosperms-the group to which conifers belong.
There are many different types of beetles that pollinate the various species of magnolias located in southeastern Asia and eastern North America.
More information about magnolias can be obtained from the Magnolia Society at .

Taxonomically there are three choices; 1: to join Michelia and Yulania species in a common genus, not being Magnolia (for which the name Michelia has priority); 2: to raise subgenus Yulania to generic rank, leaving Michelia names and subgenus Magnolia names untouched; or 3: to join Michelia with genus Magnolia into genus Magnolia s.l. (a big genus).
Several studies, including studies on many species in the family Magnoliaceae, were carried out to investigate relationships.[13][14][15] What these studies all revealed was that genus Michelia and Magnolia subgenus Yulania were far more closely allied to each other than either one of them was to Magnolia subgenus Magnolia.
For example, Flora of China offers two choices: a large Magnolia which includes about 300 species, everything in the Magnoliaceae except Liriodendron (tulip tree), or 16 different genera, some of them recently split out or re-recognized, each of which contains up to 50 species.[17] The western co-author favors the big Magnolia genus, whereas the Chinese co-authors recognize the different small genera.
He was at least responsible for the taxonomic part of Johann Jacob Dillenius’s Hortus Elthamensis[4] and of Mark Catesby’s Natural History of Carolina, Florida and the Bahama Islands.[5] These were the first works after Plumier’s Genera that used the name Magnolia, this time for some species of flowering trees from temperate North America.
In 1703 Charles Plumier (1646–1704) described a flowering tree from the island of Martinique in his Genera.[3] He gave the species, known locally as "talauma", the genus name Magnolia, after Pierre Magnol.
Magnolia sumatrae (Dandy) Figlar & Noot.
Magnolia subgenus Magnolia can not be renamed because it contains Magnolia virginiana, the type species of the genus and of the family.
Magnolia elliptilimba (B.L.Chen & Noot.) Figlar .
Magnolia is a large genus of about 210[1] flowering plant species in the subfamily Magnolioideae of the family Magnoliaceae.
As nomenclature is supposed to reflect relationships, the situation with the species names in Michelia and Magnolia subgenus Yulania was undesirable.
In 1934, the English botanist J.E. Dandy argued that these names had priority over the names by which both species had been known for over a century and hence from then on Magnolia denudata had to be named Magnolia heptapeta, Magnolia liliiflora should be changed into Magnolia quinquepeta.
Recent molecular and morphological research shows that former genera Talauma, Dugandiodendron, Manglietia, Michelia, Elmerrillia, Kmeria, Parakmeria, Pachylarnax (and a small number of monospecific genera) all belong within the same genus, Magnolia s.l. (s.l. = sensu lato: ‘in a broad sense’, as opposed to s.s. = sensu stricto: ‘in a narrow sense’).

This nearly comprehensive species list has been adapted from the one used by the Magnolia Society.[18] It does not represent the last word on the subclassification of the genus Magnolia (see above), as a clear consensus has not yet been reached.
Both subgenus Magnolia and subgenus Yulania include species of major horticultural importance, and a change of name would be very undesirable for many people, especially in the horticultural branch.
Figlar, R.B. (2000), Proleptic branch initiation in Michelia and Magnolia subgenus Yulania provides basis for combinations in subfamily Magnolioideae.

When Linnaeus took up Magnolia in his Species plantarum (1753), he created a genus of only one species: Magnolia virginiana.
Yulania contains several deciduous Asiatic species, such as Magnolia denudata and Magnolia kobus, which have become horticulturally important in their own right and as parents in hybrids.
With the number of species increasing, the genus was divided into the two subgenera Magnolia and Yulania.
Magnolia punduana (Hook.f. & Thoms.) Figlar .
Magnolia dianica Sima & Figlar .
Magnolia floribunda (Finet & Gagnep.) Figlar .
Magnolia contains the American evergreen species Magnolia grandiflora, which is of horticultural importance, especially in the United States, and Magnolia virginiana, the type species.
Magnolia glauca has the same type specimen as Magnolia virginiana and as the latter is the first valid name, the species is now called Magnolia virginiana (Sweetbay magnolia).
Carolus Linnaeus, who was familiar with Plumier’s Genera, adopted the genus name Magnolia in 1735 in his first edition of Systema naturae, without a description but with a reference to Plumier’s work.
Fossilised specimens of Magnolia acuminata have been found dating to 20 million years ago, and of plants identifiably belonging to the Magnoliaceae dating to 95 million years ago.[2] Another aspect of Magnolias that is considered to represent an ancestral state is that the flower bud is enclosed in a bract rather than in sepals; the perianth parts are undifferentiated and called tepals rather than distinct sepals and petals.
Magnolia flaviflora ( & Wu) Figlar .
Magnolia shiluensis (Chun & Y.F.Wu) Figlar .
By the end of the 18th century, botanists and plant hunters exploring Asia began to name and describe the Magnolia species from China and Japan.
Magnolia xanthantha (C.Y.Wu ex Law & Y.F.Wu) Figlar .
The English botanist William Sherard, who studied botany in Paris under Joseph Pitton de Tournefort, a pupil of Magnol, was most probably the first after Plumier to adopt the genus name Magnolia.
The number of species in the genus Magnolia depends on the taxonomic view that one takes up.
The natural range of Magnolia species is a disjunct distribution, with a main centre in east and southeast Asia and a secondary centre in eastern North America, Central America, the West Indies, and some species in South America.
The genus Magnolia s.s. contains about 120 species.
In 1753, he took up Plumier’s Magnolia in the first edition of Species plantarum.
The same goes, mutatis mutandis, for the (former) genera Talauma and Dugandiodendron, which are then placed in subgenus Magnolia, and genus Manglietia, which could be joined with subgenus Magnolia or may even earn the status of an extra subgenus.
Magnolia lucida (B.L.Chen & S.C.Yang) V.S.Kumar .
In Europe, Magnolia even is more or less a synonym for Yulania, since most of the cultivated species on this continent have Magnolia (Yulania) denudata as one of their parents.
Magnolia ovoidea (H.T.Chang & B.L.Chen) V.S.Kumar .
Magnolia tripetala (Umbrella magnolia) and Magnolia acuminata (Cucumber tree) are still recognized as species.

Magnolia microcarpa (B.L.Chen & S.C.Yang) Sima .
Classified in Yulania, is also the American deciduous Magnolia acuminata (Cucumber tree), which has recently attained greater status as the parent which is responsible for the yellow flower colour in many new hybrids.
Magnolia opipara (H.T.Chang & B.L.Chen) Sima .
Magnolia hypolampra (Dandy) Figlar .

Often treated as a distinct species, Magnolia dealbata.
Botanists do not yet agree on whether to recognize a big Magnolia genus or the different small genera.
Since Linnaeus never saw an herbarium specimen (if there ever was one) of Plumier’s Magnolia and had only his description and a rather poor picture at hand, he must have taken it for the same plant which was described by Catesby in his 1730 Natural History of Carolina.

Mature Height /Spread: Star magnolia is a dense, oval-to-rounded deciduous shrub or small, multi-stemmed tree that grows 15 to 20 feet tall and 10 to 15 feet wide.
Landscape Use: The branches of sweetbay magnolia grow upright, making this tree ideal for outdoor living areas – decks, patios and pools, as well as lawn specimens and border accents.
Mature Height/Spread: Southern magnolia, also known as Bull Bay, is a handsome evergreen tree that will grow 60 to 80 feet tall and 30 to 50 feet wide.
Ornamental Features: This tree is valued for many features: beautiful, fragrant flowers; dark lustrous leaves; striking fruit and overall size and stature.
Saucer magnolia, a hybrid, is usually a large, spreading shrub or small, low-branched tree with wide spreading branches.
Leaves range from small (2 inches long, 1 inch wide), as with star magnolia, to large (10 inches long, 4 inches wide), as with Southern magnolia.
Ornamental Features: Most magnolias are valued for their showy, fragrant flowers, large glossy leaves and striking fruit.
As with star magnolia, avoid planting this tree in southern exposures, as bloom will occur earlier.

Today is Saturday 09/21/2012 just lastnite I took the red seeds that kinda looks like a bean from the cones and soaked them for maybe ten minutes just long enough to remove the red coating and inside is the light brown seed some medium to dark brown… and so by reading this article plus reading the tips from different people I’m doing just exactly what this article says to do and I will post my results as soon as I see the results by the way someone mentioned they needed seeds I have tons if whoever it was wants them because here right now in south central Arkansas my Magnolia trees are loaded.
I have 3 magnolia tree I pick some seed today I am going to put it into a pot and start selling the plants , I will sell them very cheap , I lost my job over seven years , am a house maker , and I need a money to help my self , am from the carribian Trinidad , I know how to grow all plant , but if anyone need some seed I will like to send it to them .
your seeds looks like you’ve pulled it off the tree and the leaves on this tree where im at they aren’t waxy they look a little bit more like a milkweed leaf, and this tree the seed pods when you brake them they smell like cross between sassafras-tree-leaves and hickory-tree-nuts thats what i think i know its a “cone” but i like to call it a “pod” anyways thank you for the info im not good at growing hard seeds because its hard for me and these seeds look alot like butterfly bush seeds & the shape is just about the same these are just a bit fatter and red then dark.
I have a magnolia tree that has been producing beautiful flowers and seeds, I haven’t yet tried to grow trees from the seeds yet but will be trying now since you have all put so much information up on how to do this.
I am also from central MIssouri, I have been working in Southern Oklahoma and found these seeds and after some research found out they were from a Magnolia tree, I picked up 5 or 6 seeds and am going to try and plant them when I get back home.
I have a question, when I was young our neighbor had a magnolia tree, it had a huge slit-like indentation in it, years later my sister and I see what she believes to be the same tree-35 years later to be exact, I tell her that is not the same tree, she says ” yes it is, look at the tree in the old black and white picture and look at the google image of it on google earth, it has the same split-like indentation” I told her that trees pass down their characteristics, is this true? can a magnolia tree make the same kind of looking tree? please help settle a debate between two sisters.
The Palmetto has multiplied from a single stem to half a dozen and has filled in an area about fifteen feet in diameter; it’s creeping toward the magnolia in a menacing fashion, so I’m going to tell my yard man to start digging out the palms closest to my prized small tree.

Most varieties of magnolia grow best in porous soil with a pH of 5.0 to 6.5. Water trees regularly — although most magnolia cultivars tolerate some dryness, extreme drought causes premature leaf drop.
The variety of magnolia growing in your landscape will determine its specific needs but in general, trees require acidic soil, full sun to partial shade and regular watering.
Prune evergreen magnolia trees before spring growth and deciduous species just after they bloom.
Magnolia trees (Magnolia spp.) bloom in early spring or summer and feature flowers of pink, red, purple or white.
Established magnolia trees are hard to move, so choose a permanent location to protect shallow, thick roots from soil compaction or digging.
Prune immature, slow-growing trees to direct their shape — cut back deciduous magnolias after flowering in late spring to early summer and evergreens just before they bloom.
Tree leaf veins turn yellow if the soil lacks a sufficient amount of iron, so feed trees with a fertilizer rich in sulfur and iron.

Star Magnolia flowers are 3 to 5 inches in diameter with 12 to 40 petal-like parts called "tepals." The overall effect of the tepals is that of a starburst, hence the name, "Star Magnolia." Flowers are white, although a few cultivars have pinkish flowers.
Growing as a small to large evergreen tree, Southern Magnolia also was found to be widely adaptable to different climates, soils, and exposures.
Saucer Magnolia: Saucer and other large-flowered hybrid magnolias are deciduous trees known for their spectacular display of flowers appearing before the foliage in late winter and early spring.
This native of southeastern North America was first introduced to Europe in 1731, and quickly became popular because of its glossy evergreen foliage, large beautiful flowers and elegant form.
The small flowers are produced in large numbers because they form all along the branches and not just at the stem tips as with many other magnolias.
When you start looking into magnolias, you will want one in every bed! Some magnolias are grown primarily for their flowers, usually in the form of a shrub or small tree.
Star Magnolia is a slow growing, broad spreading, small tree or large shrub, ultimately reaching 15 feet tall or more.
Champaca Magnolia is often grown in humid subtropical and tropical areas because it is valued for its form as an evergreen tree as well as its floral fragrance.
Consult our Magnolia Cultivars Checklist for options and consider visiting one of the gardens listed on this map to get an idea for the kinds of magnolias that are likely to do well in your climate.
Other magnolias grow to be large shade trees, and yet others are used as evergreen shrubs, trees or hedges.
Champaca Magnolia is a native of southeastern Asia famous for its extremely fragrant creamy-white, yellow or yellow-orange flowers.
Deciduous magnolias (those that drop their leaves in fall) are best planted when dormant, typically in late fall or winter in warmer climates and early spring in cold climates.
Thus, it was the first Magnolia to be planted widely as a street or shade tree and is now grown nearly worldwide wherever suitable climate and soils exist.
Champaca Magnolia’s typical size in the landscape is 30 feet tall and wide, though this tree may grow much larger with time.
Growing as large shrubs or trees, they produce showy, fragrant flowers that are white, pink, red, purple or yellow.
Champaca Magnolia: Many magnolias grow in subtropical and tropical climates typical of USDA Zones 10-12 and warmer.
Southern Magnolia has glossy, leathery, evergreen, oval-shaped leaves that are 5 to 8 inches or more long and half as wide.
There are more than 200 species of Magnolia native to temperate, subtropical and tropical areas of southeastern Asia, eastern North America, Central America, the Caribbean and parts of South America.

It’s a good idea to plant Southern magnolias within defined landscape beds rather than a lawn, since the trees shed leaves and seedpods each spring and also produce surface roots over time.
Southern magnolias are often planted as specimen trees, but a row of magnolias can also make a great screen for blocking unsightly views or establishing a boundary between adjoining properties.
If your tree drops a number of leaves during the first season, don’t be alarmed—transplant shock is fairly common with Southern magnolia.

Soil The Jane Magnolia grows in acidic, loamy, moist, rich, sandy, silty loam, well drained soils.
The designation slow means the plant grows 12” or less per year; medium refers to 13 to 24” of growth per year; and fast to 25” or greater.

(The showy part of magnolia flowers is technically composed of tepals, not petals.) The fragrant flowers, usually pink or purple, appear in early spring before the leaves emerge and sit atop the branches facing skywards.
In recent decades, great advancements in magnolia breeding have added canary yellow to the typical color range of white, pink, and purple flowers.
My favorite cultivars include ‘Alexandrina’, which has tepals that are white on the inside and purple on the exterior; ‘Brozzoni’, white with a rose-purple base; ‘Lilliputian’, a smaller form with diminutive flowers; and ‘Norbertii’, with soft pink flowers.

Soil The Saucer Magnolia grows in acidic, loamy, moist, rich, sandy, well drained, clay soils.
A hybrid cousin of America’s magnificent Southern Magnolia, the Saucer Magnolia is actually a large spreading shrub that take its name from its wide, saucer-like flowers.
The designation slow means the plant grows 12” or less per year; medium refers to 13 to 24” of growth per year; and fast to 25” or greater.
Wildlife use larger dead branches of the Saucer Magnolia as nesting sites and the sprouts of young trees are browsed.
Mature Height The Saucer Magnolia grows to be 20′ – 30′ feet in height.
Growth Rate This tree grows at a medium growth rate.
Mature Spread The Saucer Magnolia has a spread of about 25′ at full maturity.

It will bloom when only three to four feet tall and is excellent as a pruned evergreen hedge, for use as a small street tree or for use as an espalier; `Majestic Beauty’ (patented) has large, dark green leaves, a pyramidal shape, and profuse flowering; `Praecox Fastigiata’ has upright, narrow growth habit; `Samuel Sommer’ has an upright, rapid growth habit and flowers up to 14 inches across; `Victoria’ is very hardy, has small flowers, and rust-red leaf-undersides.
Mary’ has a compact form, will bloom when young, is slow-growing, and the leaves have a bronze underside; `Gloriosa’ has large flowers and leaves; `Goliath’ has flowers up to 12 inches across, a long blooming period, and a bushy habit of growth; `Hasse’ can be used for a compact, dense hedge or screen; `Lanceolata’ has a narrow pyramidal form, narrower leaves with rusty undersides; `Little Gem’ has a dwarf upright form, probably to 30 feet tall, small leaves and flowers, is very slow-growing, flowers heavily at an early age and for a long time during the summer (5-months), and has bronze leaf-undersides.

The Little Gem magnolia tree is the sweetest of all South Florida’s small flowering trees – compact, hardy, and wonderfully fragrant.
COMPANION PLANT SUGGESTIONS: Consider other cold-tolerant plants that will contrast well in color and/or texture: Plum loropetalum, variegated pittisporum, drift rose, foxtail fern, Indian hawthorne and pygmy date palm.
Small, shrubby and easy-care, this dwarf magnolia tree is equally at home in formal gardens or more casual landscaping.
Fallen leaves of the Little Gem magnolia tree are not the mess that the big magnolias are famous for, though you will have some leaves to pick up now and then.
Little Gem magnolia tree blooms while very young, unusual in a magnolia, with a longer bloom season as well.
The Little Gem magnolia tree grows slowly to about 15 to 20 feet.
The tree produces a heavy bloom in spring and then blooms on and off the rest of the year (more in warm months).

There are around 210 species of magnolia that differ in size, shape, color of the flower and type of habitat.
Unfortunately, some species of magnolia are facing uncertain future due to habitat loss as a result of increased human activity.
Magnolia produces 1 ½ to 3 inches wide flower that consists of up to 18 leathery tepals (fused petals and sepals).
Interesting Magnolia tree Facts: Size of magnolia tree depends on the species.

Of all the magnolias, the native southern magnolia, with its large, waxy, fragrant, white flowers and large, dark green, leathery, evergreen leaves, is a symbol of the Deep South.
Star Magnolia (Magnolia stellata) is one of the earliest flowering magnolias, and thus occasionally loses its crop of prolific white, 4 inch, star-shaped flowers with 12 to 18 petals to a winter freeze.

Magnolia establish themselves with a unique rope-type root structure that allows them to soak up nutrients and water more thoroughly, providing a dense year-round canopy of large leaves.

Although no specific species of magnolia was designated as the state tree of Mississippi, most references recognize the Southern Magnolia (Magnolia grandiflora) as the state tree.
Mississippi adopted the magnolia as the official state tree in 1938.

Magnolia tree care tip: You can fight saucer magnolia’s tendency to produce multiple stems through pruning so as to favor one, dominant trunk.
Other varieties of magnolia trees besides "Saucer" magnolias include star magnolia tree (M.
