Magnolia ~ Wednesday Shadows

The magnolia tree in my yard is a favorite of mine, as many others are as well. But the leaves on this tree are huge. They are called saucer-sized for a reason. Another great advantage of this tree is it is an evergreen. The tree stays green year round. The blooms are an added bonus nature offers.

Sharing with the Wednesday Shadows challenge.

  1. Ahhh! Magnolias, my favorite flowering tree in the whole world. The sages say, that we should own fewer things in life, the fewer things we own or are responsible for, the fewer will be the stresses that accompany them but if I can make one exception, I would love to have and care for a magnolia tree I can just about smell the one in the photo.

  2. I planted two magnolia trees right after winter. I felt so dismayed that our ornamental pear, pomegranate trees are decidous and they shed all the leaves. My front yard looked so bare and I don’t like the exposure. So, I planted evergreen trees in the front yard, such as: 12 lucadendrons, 2 pacific blue trees, 3 king protea trees, 1 verbanum evergreen, 1feijoa tree.

    My 2 magnolia trees are looking good. Do you fertilize them? How often? What type of mulch and fertilizer? How often do you water? Thank you.
