Birds & Blooms
While visiting Georgia, I saw this gorgeous shrub. What kind is it?
Melinda: This small magnolia packs lots of beauty for its size. It’s one of the Little Girl series of magnolias, bred to grow 8 to 15 feet tall and bloom in mid-to-late spring. The later bloom time reduces the risk of flowers being damaged by late spring frost. Many of the Little Girl varieties produce additional flowers sporadically throughout the growing season. Ann has the deepest pink flowers like the one you observed. Jane, Betty, Judy, Pinkie, Randy, Ricki and Susan are the other members of this vibrant plant series.
