Star Magnolia - 2016

Here is a look at the Star Magnolia growing in Gardens at Waters East.  I find the petals on this plant to be so “graceful”.  The photos here span the time of blooming this year – from first buds on April 24, 2016 to end of blooms June 1, 2016.

Enjoy another of the favorites

in the gardens on the shore of Lake Michigan.

one last look at the STAR in all its glory

no photos are “staged”, “arranged”, or ”photo-shopped” in anyway.

  1. Wunderschön blüht die Sternmagnolie. Ich mag das reine Weiß. Leider erfrieren hier bei uns oft die Blüten, deshalb wird sie selten gepflanzt.
