Japanese Magnolias

As usual the Japanese magnolias got burned by frost and the blooms  are now just brown wads on the still bare branches. This happens every year here in east central Alabama. This year frost came at 2 junctures, just in time to take out the first bloomers, then waiting a bit to get the second group a few days ago. This is the reason i do not grow Japanese magnolias, altho I think they are superbly beautiful. The heart break is not something I willingly take on.

I usually gather a branch or two from the yard of a vacant house down the road, and enjoy them as cut flowers for the few days they last in a vase.
