After a mild winter my 7 deciduous Magnolia's and snake's head fritillaries are in full bloom. My Waggy's and Trachy's started to drop their blue seeds and new flowerstalks are on their way. Palms and Magnolia's make a perfect match in spring.

I love the spring Magnolia bloom. The deciduous varieties can be tricky to get established where I live but they are fantastic looking mixed with Trachycarpus

Yes to dry. Sudden dry heat during spring can catch the gardener out new emerging growth can be damaged. Once established they are tougher but do better at higher elivations. There was a fantastic pink magnolia growing in my parents neighbours back yard it was at least 27 years old only about 4.5 meters tall always looked good. That magnolia was cut down a week and a half ago as the new owners want to park cars there. It was the last tree left from the original onwers woodland garden.

The evergreen Magnolias have done much better for me.

What a lovely garden. Once again I say, you dont need an equatorial address to have healthy palms and gorgeous surroundings. Well done.

That looks to be a nice sized lot you have in The Netherlands. Still tons of room to plant :)

Stunning shots!

Love this period as well with blooming prunus and magnolia everywhere, however I do not grow a deciduous Magnolia in the garden here, well not anymore. Main reason is they are quite boring the rest of the year, specially if you had the weather like the last few days. That kind of weather with wind gusts up to 100 kph I do see more often in spring then for example the east of our little country. Okay, i have to say it is a nice display all the colors on the streets next too all the branches that broke off but all the prunus/magnolia trees are bare green again. Decided a few years ago too enjoy other people their trees but choose if needed different ones for the garden.

I do grow Magnolia grandiflora though, but this one did not bloomed so far. Specially the last few years some more interesting ones are introduced and the harder to get species are now easier to get.
