Magnolia stellata 'Centennial'.....the Magnolias are coming fast and furious

Magnolia biondii, zenii, denudata and now this selection of the Star Magnolia. The other stellatas will follow. Prunus 'Okame' has fat buds, red, and ready to pop.

'Centennial' is a wonderful cultivar. The buds are flushed with a bit of pink as are the flowers when they first open. The only downside is that this is one of those early bloomers that predictably gets toasted by a late frost every few years.
