I hope I can get to enjoy them since according with the weather specialists it will get hot starting next week.
Maybe we will get some rain tomorrow. If I say it like I mean it do you think it will happen?

Good gardening

Sorry, just doing some research and came across this post. So Rodica, how is this Magnolia doing for you. I didn't see what type it was. I've just ordered a Magnolia 'Leonard Messel'. On some websites it says it's hardy to zone 10. On some it says it's hardy to zone 8. We'll see.

Alan, I have 'Little Gem ' magnolia. Every year is blooming and it survived the winter and the summer wth no problem. I keep it in a big pot and I move it around as it's needs change.
Good luck with yours and keep us posted.

Rodica!
Your success with the Magnolia just blows me away.

I grew up with my grandparents on University Ave Palo Alto CA... the entire length of University and feeder streets were lined with huge magnolias. We cut the branches with the 8-10" flowers, wash the leaves with milk and display in a large urn in the house. Such a great memory.

So pretty, and I so want to add a magnolia near the pond! So glad to hear yours is doing well!

Awesome Rodica!

Thanks everybody.
Lynn, I know you have one too and yours is in the ground. Please tell us how it's doing ?
If I remember correctly it bloomed last year, right ?

lol Just realized this was an old thread! Where were the bloom pics?

Mine, is fine, loving all the rain this winter. It was really too hot last year with as few leaves as it had and the trauma of having to be moved after it's planting (gazebo fiasco).....Nancy gave me a nice tall popcorn cassia that I planted near it to help keep it cooler. It did have 2 blooms last year! This year I hope for it to put some enbergy into growing now that it's been in the ground almost a year.

Here is a picture of the Magnolia Lenoard Messel. I hope it's good to zone 10, like some of the reports say. Dave's garden says it's good to 9b. I should explain, this is not a picture of my tree. This is the picture off the label of the plant I purchased.
