Magnolia trees in South Texas

texas_lawn_ranger(9bTX)October 26, 2009

Does anybody know who has magnolia trees for sale in South Texas (Corpus Christi area)? Years ago we bought four small trees from Wal-mart of all places. One died, one is hanging on, and the other two are doing just fine. I would like to buy more trees at a reasonable price and plant them in my small five acre tract. The two healthy trees produced beautiful flowers this year.

Have you tried Fox or Turners? Would think both Lowes and Home Depot will have them, but probably not till spring. Good luck

I think that it is great that you got magnolia trees to grown in south Texas. I love magnolia trees, but remember they like to have acidic soil which most of south Texas doesn't have. When I moved into my house, the former owner had planted one. It was about 6' tall and was still 6' tall with one or two leaves on it 5 years later. So I cut it down. Maybe if you keep your soil amended you can keep them going. And I would check at Turners.

Itcollins1949 We live in the Richmond Texas area and did live on the Coast and I see them everywhere here. So they sure do find without acidic soil as they grown where no one has lived for years, but they might need help until established.

texas_lawn_ranger you need to contact your local extension agent in your area as they should be the most help. You should have a Master Gardner program in that area also and they usually are a great help also.
