Magnolia ‘Leonard Messel’

Magnolia x loebneri ‘Leonard Messel’ is one of the magnolias displaying lots of spring blossom in Gore Public Gardens. Between us we’ve photographed it a number of times in September so I thought I’d bring the different photos together. This square is cropped from a photo I took 15 Sept. – Liz

  1. Cornwall is famous for its magnolias but with the awful weather this spring I never got out to see any gardens. Hoping next spring they perform well. Meanwhile I shall savour yours 🙂
