Just a quick share this time… Magnolia macrophylla has begun to open it’s buds for the year. It has limped along for a few years in various pots. All of them, of course, too small. Anyway, I didn’t want to put this plant in the ground because I had only ever seen it for sale once, and I knew I wouldn’t stay put forever. This year I have seen it for sale at several nurseries. I guess everyone was waiting for me to find a more permanent place to plant it!
