Pruning: The Saucer Magnolia Tree typically does not require regular pruning. Remove any dead, damaged, or crossing branches in late winter or early spring to maintain a healthy and aesthetically pleasing shape.

Fertilization: Fertilize the Saucer Magnolia Tree in early spring before new growth begins. Use a balanced, slow-release fertilizer formulated for trees and follow the manufacturer's instructions for application rates. Avoid overfertilization, as it can lead to excessive vegetative growth at the expense of flower production.

Winter Protection: In zones 5-10, where winters can be challenging, it's essential to protect the Saucer Magnolia Tree from frost and freezing temperatures. Apply a layer of organic mulch around the base of the tree to insulate the roots and conserve soil moisture. Additionally, consider covering the tree with a frost blanket or burlap during extreme cold snaps to shield it from harsh weather conditions.


When planting the Saucer Magnolia Tree (Magnolia X soulangeana), choose a location with well-drained soil and full to partial sun exposure. Dig a hole that is wider and shallower than the root ball, allowing room for the roots to spread. Place the tree in the hole, ensuring that the top of the root ball is level with or slightly above the soil surface. Backfill the hole with a mixture of native soil and organic matter, gently firming the soil around the roots. Water thoroughly after planting and apply a layer of mulch around the base of the tree to conserve moisture and suppress weeds. Whether planted in the ground or in a pot, the Saucer Magnolia Tree will reward you with its magnificent blossoms.

The Saucer Magnolia Tree thrives in full to partial sun exposure, requiring at least 6 hours of direct sunlight daily to promote optimal flowering. Water the tree deeply and thoroughly, providing enough moisture to keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. During dry periods, increase watering frequency to ensure the tree's vitality. Monitor the moisture level by checking the top few inches of soil and adjust watering accordingly.
