Magnolia Frazeri Blooms
The bud of a Magnolia Frazeri
My yard is blooming! Happiness! I grew this deciduous magnolia native to North Carolina. I found it while roaming around the woods near a cabin where I was staying on the NC/Tenn line. It was about fifteen years ago. There were several of these magnolias in bloom all through the woods and under them all were lots of little sprouts. I didn’t have a shovel with me so brought it home bare roots and about a foot high. It has survived to enrich my life in my barren city landscape.
