Question From: Ann Arbor, Michigan, United States
Q: magnolia tree does not have blooms or leaf formation. we live in Mich.The tree is 15 yearsold and has bloomed /grown well and florished thru the years. What could be wrong?
Last winter and the winter before we suffered record cold temperatures. Many trees are very late leafing out and flower buds were killed over the winter. Be patient - if you see no life by the middle of June your tree may have perished. Take a knife or finger nail and scrape away a bit of bark. If you see green there is hope. In the mean time do make sure it is getting enough water. Good Luck and Thanks for visiting Yardener.com, Nancy
