Southern good looks and classic growth.
Large glossy foliage and sweetly fragrant blooms make the Southern Magnolia Tree elegant and timeless. Plus, because Magnolias are carefree and easy-growing, they offer classic good looks without any effort on your part.
How to Plant a Southern Magnolia
To thrive abundantly, some Magnolia Trees require extra room. The Sweetbay Magnolia Tree, for example, will need more room, while the Jane Magnolia, one of the lower variants, will develop to a mature height of only 10 to 15 feet high.
There's not much to do when it comes to planting your Dwarf Magnolia, fortunately. Keep in mind that most Magnolias prefer 6 hours of full afternoon sun per day. Though instructions will vary on your type, most fare best in full sun.
If you live up north, plant your tree in the spring when it’s not too cold, so those roots can get strong quickly! Apply mulch around the surface of the tree to lock in any moisture and keep weeds away.
When to Prune a Dwarf Magnolia Tree
When they're dormant, prune your Magnolia Trees in winter or early spring, and wait until the season's flowers have faded. Evergreen Magnolias that bloom in late summer or fall should be pruned during the middle of spring or end of spring.
When you do prune, simply prune for shaping and to let light into the tree's canopy. Make your cuts at a 45-degree angle using clean, sterilized pruning shears.
