Last spring we ordered an Anne Magnolia from a Canadian supplier website. It was about 16 inches tall with several buds and quite flexible and green. Throughout the summer we kept it watered, but saw no growth whatsoever. No sign of opening buds or anything. However the stems remained flexible and were not dry. Now, I'm wondering if magnolia tends to sulk after planting, and if possibly it will come alive this coming spring. We did tell the vendor about the situation and did receive a refund. But I'm still awful curious if there's perhaps if there's a chance this plant is still alive. Thank you!
