Gardeners' Notes:

i have been growing this plant in my garden for nearly two decades. the tree is 40 ft tall in my central alabama garden which is z8a. the only drawback is the early bloom (feb) that can be damaged by frosts in some years. the fragrance is incredible especially in the late afternoon and evening. now known as magnolia maudiae.
