New englanders who are growing Southern Magnolias
I'm from Western York County in Maine and I've been enamored with these trees since a high school trip to NC. After a lot of research I planted one. This will be it's first winter. It took the heat of summer surprisingly well for a freshly planted tree (here it got to 100 or more several times this summer with very little for rain. I'm sure a ton of you know about the hardier cultivars like BBB and 24 below. I'm wondering how many people in New England have had success with their southern Magnolias?
