DD Blanchard Magnolia In Austin
I know Southern Magnolia isn't generally recommended for our area, but I'm tempted to try one none the less. If I follow through, I'd want a larger variety. DD Blanchard has piqued my interest as there's several of them growing in my neighborhood that are probably about 10 years old and seem to be doing well. I've also read that this cultivar is faster growing and produced less leaf litter than the species. Anyone have experience or thoughts on this?
BTW, I'm in SW Austin. Our soil is a few feet of rocky clay before hitting bedrock. Perfect conditions for Magnolias, right? :^P
