Magnolia is such a beautiful plant that will catch your attention from the first time you lay your eyes on it. The tree embodies a waxy type of flowers that delight the garden and always allow the home around to enjoy the rarely forgettable fragrance. Notably, the plant has a variety of species that survive in different types of climatic zones.
Hardy Zones Where They Grow
Magnolia trees survive in varied climatic zones due to different properties depicted from different varieties. For instance, the magnolia species, commonly known as star magnolia or Magnolia Kobus var. stellate, can survive in zone 5 climate. Likewise, Magnolia acuminate widely referred to as cucumber tree magnolia thrives well in the zone five gardens.
The magnolia tree grows to different heights at a mature age. The extent to which a magnolia tree can grow depends on its type. For instance, the Magnolia acuminate can bear leaves that are ten inches long. Also, the tree can grow to a length of fifty feet tall.
Besides, two other species, 'magnolia Betty' and 'Magnolia Ann,' grow to a height of ten feet. On the other hand, the magnolia species, also called the yellow bird and butterflies, emerge as the tallest variety that yields an approximate of 15 to 20 feet of height at maturity. Notably, all the types survive zones starting from 4 to 9.
The width of magnolia plants varies from the type or variety of Magnolia. However, the more gigantic magnolias have an approximate of thirty to forty feet in width. This feature makes Magnolia useful in the provision of shade.
The trees thrive well in soils that are well-drained and slightly acidic. As a result, the provision of slight moisture will significantly enhance the plant’s flower productivity. Prospective farmers should consider mulching at the base of each tree to encourage water absorption and improve the drainage.
After planting, the trees should be watered at least two to three times each week for six months. The quantity of water to be applied should range from two to three liters in correspondence to the tree’s trunk diameter.
Magnolia has an approximate of more than fifty varieties. Each variety presents different properties. However, the most common Magnolia feature pink, yellow, red, purple, and white flowers to give your compound an ornamental appearance.
Best Places to Plant a Magnolia Tree
In a bid to get a healthy plant, you should strive to grow Magnolia on an independent piece of land where there is reduced competition from other plants. The reduction of background growth helps you to enjoy the large and glossy leaves.
The deciduous magnolia varieties always have their flowers open during the early months of spring just before the flowers sprout. They sprout from buds that are formed during the previous growing season. The evergreen types of Magnolia bloom during the transition months between spring and summer. However, some species bloom without following any pattern.
