|Love the soft-silky-hairy new leaves |
We grew this hardy magnolia from seed a few years ago, but don't really have a place to put it - where do you put a 30-40-foot tree that likes shade on a suburban lot? So for now, it's stuck in a corner between the conifers on the berm and the blackberry bramble patch, where it gets enough shade for the time being. Maybe we'll at least get to see it bloom...

|Dave Pauplis||Apr 18, 2005||Do you know of any mail order nursery that sells the umbrella Magnolia?
My local garden center no longer stocks it. Any leads would be appreciated.
Dave, I grew my own from seed, and have also seen it at a local native plant sale. For mail order, Forest Farm sells it (click here for details).
|Alexander Mrkich||Oct 08, 2006||Thanks for the website. I have seeds - are there any instructions for planting?
Thanks in advance.|
I started these from seed, but that predates my recordkeeping, so I don't recall just what I did. Probably a short cold treatment, followed by room temperature.
