I finally got a new Michelia Alba and it is the best shaped anything I have ever bought from anyone at any place!!

I expeceted a twig, really, or even a joke of a grafted tree, tiny you know?

Well the one I received is one of the best shaped ones with two flower buds already on it...My goodness, I never would of thought for a measly 45 dollars!!!

Ok, I couldn't wait to let you all know and this morning I alreay potted it up into a 5.1.1 mix with pumice and lime and I am thrilled to see it sitting under my tree in a nice looking pot..

Would you like me to share pics? I will, as soon as I can bet my but out of this workplace...

Thanks to the vendor and my friends for stopping by.

By the way, after having to almost cut my other right back to the graft live, I am see new signs of life..Maybe I'll have two if it makes a good comeback..

Hi Mike, can you please tell me where you got it? I want a good size one and that is a good price. I grew up in Louisiana and we had several michelias in the yard. The banana one was right outside my bedroom window, what a great scent! I am determined to get several of them for my current home in the north Houston area.
Do you have a picture?

Congrats Mike. I love 9greenbox too; their plants are huge.The only thing that I don't like (as much) is the clay soil that they grow their plants in; but heck, that's because i'm too spoiled by the 511 mix lol.

Mike,

I have bought three new michelia albas since the last time I was here. The two before died on me. I can't wait to see your new one.
