The magnolia is going on its sixth year in the garden. I purchased it through Greer Gardens, but had later seen it at YIG. As most of the other magnolias are planted in sheltered positions, this one is out in the open with no protection at all, and has performed beautifully. It is now about 10' wide and 15' tall and is expected to grow another 15'. Unlike most of the other magnolias (soulangiana, sprengeri, stellata) available to northerners, they are in full leaf when in bloom. Lulu, yours looks an awful lot like one I have M. stellata "royal star". They are a smaller tree and are known to be outstanding bloomers

[b][Kelly I started my mini mg's under the lights in May and later on planted them out. They were beautiful in 07 but were less then exciting last year. We had late frosts and a cooler summer last year and they didnt bloom as well., Here is a couple pitures to compare from 07 and 08., I also had other colours then the pink..savona/b]

Thanx Dan,,for the name M Stellata Royal Star; sounds really familiar for some reason.

Keeping my fingers crossed that at least one of the ones that didn't bloom will be the Yellow Bird,,even though I rarely ever buy or like yellow anything,,it's amazing!

Got the whole vanload of trees, including these magnolias, and about a dozen rhodos, 20 assorted bags of soil & fertilizers, neem oil,,and on and on,,,for $22.00 so,,,anything and everything that blooms is one huge bonus!!
