Japanese Magnolias in New Orleans, its early Spring Now!

    The Japanese Magnolias are beautiful small trees or large bushes to have in your yard. They have been in profuse blooms the last 2 weeks in South Louisiana.  The small trees will grow to between 15 ft. and 30 ft. high.  All the blooms tend to bloom at once, right before the leaves come out. The purple, white and pink blooms are your chooses.  You have to buy them now to make sure which you are getting. They bloom like clock work.

Japanese Magnolias  in New Orleans

    This is the one that I have in my front yard growing under a large oak tree. Its most likely 25 years old.  Once the blooms are finished the whole tree will be full of light green leaves.  Its called a Japanese Magnolia but is not native to Japan.  They are really carefree in the humid New Orleans climate and are very pretty with just the leaves.  The blooming tends to happen about the time of Mardi Gras.  In fact I took this photo on Mardi Gras day.

    I neede information on maitnenance and up keep of Japanese Magnolas.

    They tend to like shade and not indirect sun in well drained soil. Mine is next to a live oak and gets along great. It takes a while if its in an open yard. They must like shade cover.
