Saucer Mangolia looking droopy
My special Saucer Magnolia is looking a little droopy after this last wild storm- I am worried about it. The two tallest shoots have splayed out a bit and the leaves seem to weigh the branches down after only a little rain.
We bought it in March 06 after we first moved into this house to commemorate our first home in Portland. When we first moved here it was to a rental in SW Portland that had a 30 year old magnolia tree in it's backyard. Being from California it surprised the heck out of us coming into glorious bloom in the Spring. It sorta welcomed us to Portland and that is why I wanted one of my own. It really has a soft spot in my heart.
What can I do to help it? stake the branches up to support it? it has some spotting on the branches. I so wish this wind would stop so it can recover in some way.
Thanks so much.
