Magnolia grandiflora in OK
Hi. I'm actually writing from Cleveland Ohio and used to travel to the Tulsa area for work back in the 1990's. I am experimenting with various Magnolia grandifloras here in Ohio with very good success, though our winters along Lake Erie have been fairly mild lately. I know that many of you had a very cold winter and read where temps were between -10 and -20 in certain areas. I remember seeing some very nice Magnolias in the Tulsa area years ago. What happened to them after this past winter? Did they defoliate? Were certain cultivars hardier than others? I'm sorry to interupt your forum but I was very curious in that I've been experimenting with them this far north. Thank you! Nikkie.
