What gardener doesn't like to recycle everything they can? Gather a few leaves, pick up some weather worn mulch or bark from fallen branches, and use an empty container for a rainy afternoon project. Imagination is the prime ingredient for this project.

The Jane Magnolia is a member of the "little girl" group of magnolias; a group of hybrids created at the U.S. National Arboretum in the 1950's by Francis DeVos & William Kosar. Magnolias in this series were developed to bloom 2 to 4 weeks later than M. stellata & M. x soulangiana which reduces the chance of damage by frost.
M. Jane is a slow growing shrub or tree. It can be pruned to take on a more shrub like appearance or left to be a small tree form. The blooms are tulip shaped. Flowers appear before the leaves appear & flowers have been known to repeat bloom in mid summer.
M. Jane does best with full morning sun & some shade from the hot afternoon sun especially in the deep south.
Good air circulation should considered to prevent powdery mildew. Protect from high winds to prevent damage to the leaves. Prefers rich, moist, well drained soils but will do well in a wide variety of soil conditions.

After showing no signs of life, dug it up and placed in a container. It is showing some new shoots at the base however.

Due to late hard frost, the buds didn't open. Tree is still alive with growth emanating from the base but it shows no other signs of life.
