    Hi folks,

    I have a magnolia grandiflora here in Annapolis, MD (Zone 7b). For two years now, the leaves have been curling under, lumping up, and generally looking like they are starved for water. Generally, it gets plenty of water. I am afraid that the tree might have a fungal disease, perhaps Verticillium. How can I find a lab that can test for whatever might be wrong?
