The Wada’s Memory Magnolia was introduced to the western world in 1959 by a Japanese botanist named Koichiro Wada - hence the name! Koichiro Wada worked to bring Japanese trees to the western part of the world, so we thank him for this stunning tree, as well as other varieties!

How To Plant Wada’s Memory Magnolia
The Wada’s Memory Magnolia thrives in locations that offer full sun as well as partial shade. These trees enjoy areas of consistently moist soils that are well-draining, while offering adaptability to clay, loam, and sandy sites. When dealing with trees that offer early spring blooms, like the Wada’s Memory Magnolia, it would be within your best interest to provide shelter from dry, cold winds which may damage those early buds! Do this by planting your tree in locations that offer protection from those harsh winds, and when dealing with frost or other cold weather phenomena, wrapping younger trees will help protect those new buds!
How To Water
So, you've just planted your Wada’s Memory Magnolia and now it's time to water! For best results, when first planted we recommend watering your Wada’s Memory Magnolia at least twice weekly until established. Another method you may use would be watering once a week but deeply, making sure to saturate the ground. Be sure to keep an eye on your local weather and water when necessary during periods of drought.
How To Fertilize
When considering the process of feeding your Wada’s Memory Magnolia, no need to fret! It's fairly simple! Fertilize your tree twice a year: once in the beginning of spring - before your tree breaks dormancy - and then again during fall, before your tree enters dormancy. This will ensure your Magnolia is receiving the proper amount of nutrients throughout the entirety of the year.
How To Prune
Stressed about pruning? Well, you are in luck as the Wada’s Memory Magnolia requires little to no pruning! In fact, if pruned back too hard, you may prevent flowering in the future. When the tree is in its younger years, you may do a light trim if you see fit. Do so after the blooms have faded in late spring to early summer - this will help shape the tree as it grows older.

How Does Sizing Work?
The size of our trees have nothing to do with the container size like you may find elsewhere–big doesn't mean just height - it’s also vigor, age, and overall health. Other online retailers are going to tell you that a plant is a seven gallon, that means nothing to your tree or plant (or you.)
Our trees for sale online are graded on large, x-large, and even bigger sizes. This is because our trees are sized by their age—the higher the letter, the more mature the tree. The age determines the trees’ overall height, size of the trunk and the overall branch density.
All of these characteristics are what you should be looking for when choosing a tree for immediate impact and instant curb appeal. Our extra-large tree and plant sizes are sure to wow you and your neighbors!
