I believe those are called Saucer Magnolias, there are quite a few growing in the Indianapolis area as well and down here they are through blooming aside from a few flowers here or there during tne summer, and they are at peak blooming stages about 2 weeks late in your location? YIKES. by the way i suppose they bloomed here right on schedule, guess you all must have had a super cold and snowy winter for those to be in full bloom so late.

North 42, Saucer and Star magnolias are way more common in the indianapolis area and to be honest with you, the evergreen southern magnolia is quite rarely seen in the indianapolis metro area, i would estimate that there are probably no more than a couple dozens of southern magnolias in the city of indianapolis, and i think that most were planted within the past 10 or 15 years as for the possibility of any evergreen southern magnolias in vermont or new hamshire, i think that their chances of surviving that far north or inland in new england is very slim at best. I believe they generally arent seen much further northwest in new england than parts of Massachusetts.

Thanks. Yup.. put it this way.. No tree alive today around here experienced a cold like we did in February. The only saving grace was the historic snow pack depth and length so it kept the ground from truly freezing up deep down.. Cold and snow carried over in March as well.

Last year same with the landscape. Late.

Check out my tree...

1-2 weeks behind normal leaf out which is end of April.. 3-4 weeks behind the warm anomaly year of 2012.

4/18/12 left already leafed. Started end of March.
4/7/15 middle nothing but tiny buds.
4/29/15 finally buds becoming apparent.

Same here, lots of Saucer and Star Mags, great big old specimens too, but I know of only 3 Southern mags in Windsor. I'm sure there are others, but I have yet to come across any others. I walk a lot, and am always observing the local plants and try to find interesting zone pushing species.
As for Vermont and New Hampshire having evergreen southern mags, I bet they grow in the southern extreme, especially along the tiny strip of coast. If we can grow them here, they should be able to as well, as Windsor and Boston are at the same latitude, and they are just north of Boston.

Just checked out two of the Souther Mags in Windsor that I know of, and the largest one in Jackson Park is doing really well, just a bit of tip dieback, but full of new leaves. The other smaller one at the University of Windsor has about half dieback from the last two brutal winters. Last year it only had a bit of dieback.
I also checked on some of the large Mimossa Trees on Giles Bvd, and they are all alive, but with some branch tip dieback. Looks like these trees really are long term here.

Same here, One of the Southern Magnolias near the Maggianos Little Italy Restaurant in Indianapolis is doing very well with and is producing lots of new leaves and new growth, and is probably going to bloom with flowers all summer long at the rate that it is going, still has lots of flower buds that have yet to blossom as of today June 14th, IIRC last year it seemed that this same tree blossomed almost entirely in early summer aka June/July, this season for some reason the flowers are far fewer than this time last year; however it has lots of flowers ready to bloom on it; last year when I had returned at the end of July or Beginning of August, this Southern Magnolia had all but completely finished blooming for the year, we shall see what this summer brings, last July was the Coldest July on modern record in Indy, perhaps that is what did it, My gut feeling is that this summer may be longer and hotter and perhaps more humid than last summer in Indianapolis, we shall see if my gut feeling is correct on this, the other Southern Magnolia near the same restaurant seems to have a few more dead branches on it and is much more unsightly to look at and I have no idea why that is. Both Specimens still alive though that is a relief. Another very small baby southern Magnolia in a persons yard apparently survived this past winter season relatively unaffected(its leaves were just a bit bronzed) not a clue what cultivar it is though, my guess is it is either an Edith Bogue or a Hardy Cultivar like it.

I saw the one larger Southern Magnolia that I know of here in Denver yesterday and while it wasn't as "full" as it should be, it actually didn't look half bad. And it had quite a few large flower blooms on it. If this winter doesn't bring any freak cold, it should look back to normal next summer. It's shocking how hardy these trees can actually be!

I actually am in Fort Worth, Texas right now, but at the last observation the Southern Magnolias near Maggianos Little Italy Restaurant in Indianapolis had nearly finished unfurling leaves and are probably about as full as they are going to be; and unless there are any freak arctic blasts this winter, I suspect that those trees may be back to normal, or at least closer to normal leaf fullness, by next summer. The Magnolias near that eatery aren't as full as they should be either, by the way.
