Magnolia "Leonard Messel"

Ellerbe, NC(Zone 8a)

Just wanted to show how good it is doing. Blooming like crazy!!! Love, Love, LOVE this Magnolia. I live in NC, about 30 miles from SC boarder ... Richmond co.

It has star-shaped flowers with 12 narrow petals, white on the inside and purplish-pink on the outside.

Gorgeous! I'd love to have room for a magnolia like this.

Thank you, it's about 15 ft high and has been in the ground at least 10 years. Now I wish I'd have gotten a lot more. It does so much better than the 'girl' series magnolias I have. :)
