Royal Star

Magnolia stellata 'Royal Star'
Happy Mother's day to me !! My boys and my lovely husband presented me with this funky plant - bush - small tree ? on Mother's day. smile, I love it.
The Royal Star Magnolia is a spectacular, large shrub or small tree with large, showy, fragrant, star - shaped white flowers appearing before leaves in spring. Full to partial sun. cold hardiness -10 to -20 F
I saw this one blooming down the street so I know it can survive our harsh, long winters.


Isn't it the cutest thing.



I can't wait to get mine in the ground. Since it has only green leaves now and for the rest of summer, I bought large white hydrangeas to surround it and keep it company. Pictures of my gardens soon.
Now to get ready for the Sale.
