Funny- due to our warm and rainy summer, the magnolia's that bloom only in spring, just finished blooming again in early September. First time it has ever happened, and it was glorious. A rare and beautiful site up here. Especially as the grass is barely green when those glorious flowers bloom.
They always bloomed in May, and when I was a kid I thought they bloomed specially for Mother's Day as they were my mother's favourite and she would make my dad stop the car when we saw a tree
I cannot wait to smell this one! I adore MPG Magnolia Pourpre but that is a dry and powdery floral, although sweet.
