    Can you tell us what type of magnolia it is? I know magnolias like water and Texas can be quite hot and dry. What has the weather been like in your area this spring?

    I do not remember the name, It has big white flowers when it blooms and the leaves are oblong . where i live in texas has been in a drought for a while . this year we might have had 6 to 8 inchs of rain maybe.
