Magnificent Magnolia

Two years ago I picked this Magnolia Felix Jury as the center piece for an old friend’s backyard. Today marks the first time that this tree is showing what it can do. Each glowing pink blossum is more than 8″ across, regally perched on the tips of branches. Their color, form, and texture are just impeccable. The only thing missing is a bit more fragrance, which may come later with a more mature tree.
