The Jane Magnolia aka Magnolia Liliflora
Our home would not be complete without our Jane Magnolia Tree.
Twenty years ago, our son chose a Jane Magnolia to give to me for Mother’s day. We promptly planted it and enjoyed its beautiful blooms.
A few short years later, we moved and had to leave our beauty behind. It nearly broke my heart to have to part with that tree.
When we purchased our new house, the boxes were not even unpacked before we sought out another Jane Magnolia. Today, it is every bit as important and treasured as the first gift. It stands as a constant reminder of my son’s thoughtful and giving disposition.
Each year we are delighted with the most beautiful display of delicate perfection!

Our Jane Magnolia Tree
Because they are so young when we bring them home, we all tend to form a special attachment to each of them. On a really cold night, you might find either member of our household out wrapping a blanket around the base of the tree in order to keep it warm.
This little girl has been pampered and protected by all of us. Even our fur babies know to be careful around her. After all, one hard tweak of a dogs big tail could destroy the fragile blooms on the lower limbs of the tree.
