Jane is an early blooming Magnolia tree with large, fragrant, pink, double flowers appearing before the foliage emerges in spring. Useful as an open-branched, multi-trunked large shrub or as a small specimen tree.
'Jane' is a particularly cold hardy form with large fragrant purple-red flowers that resemble tulips with white centers covering bare branches before the leaves emerge. The flowers occasionally rebloom mid-summer. It grows to a height of around 15 feet tall and 12 feet wide.
Plant in moist, rich, well-drained soils in the full sun to partial shade in rich neutral to acidic well-drained but evenly moist soils. Regular mulching of the root zone will help keep the soil moist. 'Jane' is tolerant of heavy clay soils, air pollution, and also heat. Prune sparingly only to remove dead or broken branches or if needed to maintain shape do so after flowering.
