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.
Magnolia "Leonard Messel"
Absolutely beautiful! Glad to see that spring does exist....somewhere.
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. :)
