I have a magnolia in my front yard. It looks like it's dying. There
are some flowers on some of the branches but other branches are totally
bare. Is there something I can do to save it?
I live in Long Island, New York.
Thanks in advance.
Many magnolias bloom before leafing-out. In our area, there was an unusual
and prolonged warm period in January followed by bitter cold. This spring,
we had unseasonably warm weather followed by several hard frosts. I noticed
that spring blooming shrubs like azaleas had their flower buds killed, thus
only producing the occasional flower. My guess would be that your magnolia
is fine, but won't have many flowers this year. It will probably produce
leaves when the flowers fade. How old is the tree? Do you know the
variety? Are there other similar magnolias in your neighborhood that look
the same, or is yours different?
I really don't know how old they are. Since, I didn't plant them, I
would say more than 10 years.
There are leaves and flowers on some branches but others look dead to
me :(. Hopefully they'll come back.
