How to Care for Claudia Wannamaker Southern Magnolia Trees
Before you buy a Claudia Wannamaker Southern Magnolia Tree, make sure to read about the recommended care instructions to keep this plant healthy and thriving.
How do I plant a Southern Magnolia Claudia Wannamaker Tree?
When planting your newly purchased Claudia Wannamaker Southern Magnolia trees, we suggest that you dig a hole twice as large as the root system but not deeper. Be mindful that the most common cause of plant death after transplanting is planting your tree too deep. Depending on the quality of your soil, you may need to add locally sourced compost or topsoil to compost as a back-fill soil because the products will often retain too much moisture and cause the root system to rot. If you want to add compost or topsoil, that will help younger feeder roots spread through loose, nutrient-rich soil. This will be much easier than if you only used the existing soil, which could often be hard and compact once you get down in it.
How do I water My Claudia Wannamaker Magnolia Tree?
When you first plant your Claudia Wannamaker Magnolia tree, it is crucial to water frequently to help your plant become well-established in its new home. Once your plant becomes well-established, you can back off on the frequency of watering. Typically, rainfall will be enough water for your tree to survive. However, if you live in an area prone to droughts or have an unusually warm, dry summer, make sure to water your tree more frequently to ensure its soil does not dry out. This tree likes to have consistent moisture in its soil at all times, so it is crucial to make sure the soil stays moist.
How Much Sun Does My Claudia Wannamaker Southern Magnolia Tree Requlire?
Your Magnolia tree can survive in almost every kind of sunlight. Anywhere from full sun to partial shade works perfectly with your tree. We recommend growing your tree in a location that provides full sun in the morning and afternoon shade or morning shade with afternoon sun, preferably filtered afternoon sunlight. Either option will give your tree plenty of time in the sun with some break times during extremely warm parts of each day. Your plant can survive in full sunlight for about 4 to 6 hours throughout the day as long as it receives some shaded time to rest.
What Kind of Soil Does My Magnolia grandiflora 'Claudia Wannamaker' Tree Need?
Your Magnolia grandiflora 'Claudia' thrives best in rich, moist, well-draining soil conditions. If you have areas of your garden with more acidity to the soil, your tree would love to be planted there, but it is not a necessity if they are in neutral pH soil. Your Southern Magnolia tree, once well-established, can tolerate wet feet and likes moist soil conditions. On the flip side, your tree will also be drought-tolerant and can handle the hot summer heat in the southern parts of the United States.
