    such a pretty magnolia I had bought a yellow one called butterflies, but it died within a few weeks after buying it, not sure why, but they replaced it with another magnolia that has purple red flowers which are pretty too.

    I have neighbor with one of those purple-red magnolias–they’re just gorgeous! I am a sucker for all magnolias, really. They look so exotic to me. I find it hard to believe they’ll grow in my cold climate (and sure enough, a lot of the older ones get hit by snow or frost every year and turn to mush–it’s so sad). But these newer ones that bloom a little later seem to do great and miss the later snows and frosts–they’re just magical!

      gardendaze my area they planted saucer magnolia years ago,but it often blooms to early and the blossoms get ruined (this year the frost hit as they bloomd but seemed ot not damage them this time) so I got one like it but it blooms at the end of april into may. so it got hit by frost but apparently the frost was light andshort lived and the blossums were okay.

    That’s what often gets hit by frost here as well–those lovely saucer magnolias. They don’t look so lovely when they’re all browned out by a late frost or snow. Oh well.

    Some of these later blooming ones are so pretty through–and much less worry about the late frosts and snows–although as the magnolias bloom later, the frosts and snows seem to bloom later too.
