MAGNOLIA( THE GIRLS SERIES)
Jane Magnolia, Magnolia
The Girls Series (Little Girl Series) of magnolias are the result of hybridization at the United States National Arboretum. They are all known for their beautiful array of cup and goblet shaped fragrant flowers. They bloom later than star and saucer magnolias and therefore their buds are not likely to be harmed by untimely spring frosts. Occasionally a few repeat flowers open during the summer.
Eight cultivars in the series were as a result of the cross between Magnolia nigra and M. stellata. Each carries slightly different growth habits, but are mostly grown for their array of flowers:
