    My ten year Magnolia tree's leaves are curled partially up ... the leaf edges are also curled . The tree flowered and has grown about a foot this year and is otherwise healthy . I don't see any pests about .... ? I am a bit stumped .

    I thought that was a possibility , but even the NEW growth ( produced long after a frost ) is that way . We did have a major frost when it was in full flower - it killed the flowers , but the leaves where not out at that time ?

    Can you post some photos?

    PS for case-sensitive information searching: species names are always lower case, i.e., Magnolia stellata (not "Stellata").
