Yellow magnolia

It took years of coaxing to get our magnolia (Butterflies) tree to finally bloom, but it was worth the wait. The secret to my success, I think, is that I scratched superphosphate in the soil around the base if it each fall. We also had a very mild winter and warm early spring, so perhaps that added to the mix. Whatever the reason, I think the blossoms are beautiful.
