I live in Massachusetts and my wife is originally from the south. She loves Magnolia trees and I was hoping to surprise her by planting a couple in our yard. I don't know much about them other than I've only seen them in the south. Does anyone know if they can survive the New England season changes and long cold winters?
I live in the Chicago area (you know what they say about the winters around here) and Magnolia trees are prevalent here. Can't direct you towards which species but there are apparently varieties that do well in colder climates.
