    This cultivar and others of the same series of M. liliiflora 'Nigra' and M. stellata 'Rosea' crosses are late bloomers (said to bloom 2-4 weeks later that M. stellata and M. x soulangeana varieties). This makes them less prone to damage from late spring frosts than those types.

    One of "The Girls" hybridized by the US National Arboretum , 'Ann' (NA 28344; PI 326570) is a cross between Magnolia liliflora 'Nigra' x M. stellata 'Rosea'.

    I purchased a 2 gallon plant with a couple of 3-4 ft. trunks ago, at the Leesburg Garden Fair. It's taken 8 years to really come into its own in terms of size and bloom... it's about 6 ft. tall with a similar width and a delicate structure... one of those lovely garden accents that doesn't block your view.
