Saucer Magnolia: Top Choice for Spring Bloom // A Tree that Blooms Early in the Season

# A Magnificent Magnolia Tree: Everything You Need to Know

If you’re looking for a stunning tree to add to your garden, look no further than the **Magnolia saucer and Jane variety**. These remarkable trees are early bloomers, displaying an abundance of lush pink blooms that are sure to stop anyone in their tracks.

**Hardiness Zones**

The **saucer variety** is cold hardy to **zone 5**, with some specimens growing to be as large as 30 feet in diameter. Meanwhile, the **Jane variety** is a dwarf tree and is well-suited for smaller spaces, only getting to be 10 to 15 feet tall and wide.

**How to Grow and Prune Magnolia Trees**

If you’re interested in growing Magnolia trees, Stephanie from TheFlowerFanatic has some great tips to promote healthy growth and flowering. **Magnolia trees handle pruning well**, so you can easily keep the tree in check by cutting off some of the blooms when the tree is done flowering.

Additionally, the leaves of Magnolia trees are incredibly glossy and thick, giving them a unique texture and making them great even after the blooms have faded.

**Magnolia and Complimentary Flowers**

To add even more beauty to your Magnolia tree, consider planting flowers with complementary colors. Stephanie mentions that she planted blue forget-me-nots near her Jane variety, and the contrast is stunning. Just make sure to plant them in a part-shade area, as Magnolias prefer more even temperatures to bloom their best.

  1. Is this Saucer Magnolia in your yard in full hot afternoon sun? I have a Sweet Bay Magnolia that is in full sun all day but also the hottest part of the day – it seems to be doing ok, but I'm always confused about what Full Sun means. Thanks 🙂

  2. Thanks for sharing those beautiful blossoms! My Susan Saucer Magnolia is still in the bud stage but I cannot wait to see its blooms as I only planted it last year. Spring is the best 🙂
