Wordless Wednesday - Flowering Magnolias in Bloom

Wordless Wednesday - Flowering Magnolias in Bloom

The Ann Magnolia (Tulip or Flowering Magnolia) is a beautiful, early spring, flowering tree guaranteed to turn heads. The rich purple-pink blooms are much larger than you would expect on a 10-foot or shorter tree. The Ann Magnolia is a cold-hardy tree, and the blooms smother the bare branches before other flowers awake from winter.

These beauties turn your landscape into a magical space for a precious few weeks - we always wish they lasted longer than they do. This variety is from the ‘Girl Series,' a special group of magnolias, developed right here in the USA to resist late frosts which make so many other varieties of magnolia trees hard to grow in colder areas (to -30º).

Hello Debe - a great photo to show off the color and the informative story of the Ann Magnolia displaying her "Girl Power" and color so well.

Girl Power, indeed, Michael Jacobs! I had an Alexander Magnolia in my yard at our last house. I miss having one now - for the brief time they bloom!

Dear Debe,

You are really ahead of the game with flowers. We just have crocusses in full bloom and the early daffodils starting up. Trees and shrubs are still dormant.

Posted by Dörte Engel, ABC - Annapolis, Bowie, Crofton & rest of Maryland (RE/MAX Leading Edge) 2 months ago

Lovely magnolia blossoms. The arboretum in Golden Gate Park has been leading tours showcases the variety of magnolias in full bloom. Such beauty.

We have daffodils too, Dörte Engel and they are actually starting to brown already! It's so sad that their blooms don't last very long at all...they're just so beautiful and a welcomed relief after the dreary winter months.

Oh, I love them - I only wish they lasted longer than the few weeks they do here, Lottie Kendall. We have such an abbreviated time to savor them!

Debe Maxwell, CRS - Those magnolias make a statement. They are absolutely gorgeous!!! It's like creatively marketing this home for spring with a big welcome mat that says, this is the home, where you can grow and live life fully.

Morning Debe.

We should start seeing everything around here start blooming next week.  The temps are finally warming up enough.

Posted by James Dray, Exceptional Agents, Outstanding Results (Fathom Realty AR LLC) 2 months ago

We do have those here as well though we won't be seeing blooms for a while and the varieties are a paler shade of pink.

Good morning, Debe Maxwell, CRS all I can say is we proceed in MA one step at a time....let's get rid of the snow mounds!!  and then we can appreciate the beauty of whatever blooms here... in another 3 or 4 weeks....  but aside from jealousy, I enjoy the beautiful, colorful flowering blooms that you have almost all year long...

Those are so beautiful.  Never saw a tree without leaves. Unique.

Not quite time yet in Oklahoma City but soon we will see these in bloom.

Hi Debe,
You're killing me here.  We're still covered in snow here. 

Posted by Carol Williams, Retired Agent / Broker / Property Manager (Although I'm retired, I love sharing my knowledge and learning from other real estate industry professionals.) 2 months ago

Good morning Debe - these are really beautiful.  We won't see this in New York for at least another month.

Posted by Grant Schneider, Your Coach Helping You Create Successful Outcomes (Performance Development Strategies) 2 months ago

Quite beautiful indeed and a perfect picture to share on a Wordless Wednesday!  I hope that your day will be enjoyed!

Our callery pear trees are beginning to show off white blossoms all over Sacramento. It is one of the prettiest sights, although very short lived.

Debe, I love magnolias, but they don't do well here.

Posted by Rebecca Gaujot, Realtor®, Lewisburg WV, the go to agent for all real estate (Vision Quest Realty) 2 months ago

Yes, as Carol Williams mentions, you're killing us with the blossoms. Although, I think we're a bit closer to Spring than Carol ( with snow on the ground).  Actually, the photo is beautiful and I appreciate seeing the "pretty in pink" cheer.

Debe I am jealous.  No colors around here yet, but I am hoping that changes real soon.

Posted by George Souto, Your Connecticut Mortgage Expert (George Souto NMLS #65149 FHA, CHFA, VA Mortgages) 2 months ago

Hi Debe:

Those are stunning. I have always enjoyed the magnolias but am more familiar with the white blossoms and much larger trees from back East.
