'Jane' magnolia is a hybrid deciduous shrub or small tree with a compact habit in the Magnoliaceae family. It is part of the Little Girl Series created at the National Arboretum in the 1950's by Francis DeVos and William Kosar who crossed M. liliiflora ‘Nigra’ and M. stellata ‘Rosea’.
The Little Girl Series flowers about 2-4 weeks from mid-April to early May, which is later than other species of magnolia and therefore there is less likelihood of frost damage to the flower buds. '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. (Courtesy of NC State Extension)
