Similarly, it is asked, can you get small magnolia trees?
Perfect for small gardens, Magnolia 'Ann' is a slow-growing deciduous shrub or small tree with slightly fragrant reddish-purple flowers in mid to late spring. While this Magnolia flowers primarily in spring, it may continue to bloom sporadically thereafter where moisture is adequate.
Likewise, how do you grow a small magnolia tree? Magnolias prefer a moist, well-drained soil which is rich in organic matter, so it is well worth adding some well-rotted manure or compost to the planting hole, mixing it thoroughly and deeply. Most magnolias will thrive on a neutral or slightly acid soil, with a pH of around 5.5 – 6.5.
Also asked, how fast do dwarf magnolia trees grow?
The dwarf tree's shrublike growth and slow growth rate make it ideal as a container specimen on a patio or deck. The Little Gem magnolia grows approximately 1 to 2 feet per year.
