The Magnolias near that eatery aren't as full as they should be either, by the way.
Well, El Nino will be the wild card this winter. Here in Denver, from what I've read, that means possible freak Fall/Spring blizzards, but not unusual cold or snow in the actual winter. Just keep it above zero this winter and all should be fine

El Nino in central Indiana, especially a Strong El Nino, usually means a warmer and drier than average winter, with fewer opportunities for cold outbreaks, or major winter storms. But I saw what the Farmers Almanac is predicting for the Midwest this year and though I am taking all winter predictions with a massive grain of salt right now, the Red Farmers Almanac is predicting a Frigid and Snow Filled Winter for Indiana and Neighboring Great Lakes States, Keeping my own personal winter predictions at bay because the past couple of winters have been harsher than usual and I don't want to be caught off guard. But I also heard that the yellow old farmers almanac is also predicting a colder than average winter but I have yet to see the details on what that book has to say, all I know is that No Two Winters are exactly the same and that the coming winter will likewise differ in some way shape or form, from the last two winters in Indiana. By the way, I just checked on the Two Southern Magnolias today near the Restaurant and it appears that both have all but finished producing new leaves or blooming, and this means that they are as full a leaf density as they will get for this season. Any Who, I am planning for the worst and am hoping for the best as far as how this winter's weather affects the two saplings and other Southern Magnolias within the city of Indianapolis.

This thread is getting old and going no-where. Denver can't grow healthy southern magnolias, unless they're under a glass roof or greenhouse.

i know they're gorgeous trees, but they're not going to give you satisfying results in Denver. Albuquerque, maybe, not not Denver.

I personally have an Edith Bogue and a Brackens Brown Beauty in Springfield IL. I have seen about 30 of them in the area. DD Blanchard and little Gem didn't fair as well.

What a difference a year makes! The Southern Magnolias here look amazing, all green and no bronzing at all so far. Hopefully the rest of February doesn't get too cold and stays near normal. Our coldest night here so far is 8f, I'm hoping that will be our coldest of the season so our trees can really thrive once spring hits, they really took a beating the last two winters!

I drove by one yesterday, gleaming green and healthy. Not that big though. The bigger one I know of, I drove by a couple weeks ago. I'd say it's 15' tall and looks fine. It had some damage from the freak Nov. 2014 deep freeze, but has recovered.

I'm actually surprised at how many healthy southern magnolias there are in Kansas City. Very healthy... and they've been down to 0 degrees or a little below this winter (which Denver hasn't).

I noticed very little in the way of foliage bronzing/leaf burn on the Two Southern Magnolias near the Maggianos little Italy restaurant on the North side of Indianapolis, and I also noted another southern magnolia at a plant nursery that had a lot more leaf burn/defoliation last winter at this time in Mid March than it has seen this year I suppose it makes sense though as Indianapolis failed to see any low Temperatures Below Zero, so I suspect that is why all the southern magnolias in Indianapolis area are in much better shape as of March 19th, with as I just mentioned very little to no leaf burn or defoliation this year and look much healthier this early spring than they looked in 2015 at this time and way healthier than they did in Late March 2014, when 3 trees that I know of(not counting others I don't know about) almost completely defoliatedperhaps this summer they will get closer to regaining their full thick leaf canopy

The ones I know of in Denver have no bronzing this winter and look healthy. The coldest we got at my house was 6 or 7 above zero this winter, and even on those days, the highs were in the 20s.

I've been in Kansas City twice this winter and all the magnolias there look perfect. And they've been colder than Denver at times.

Are these Southern magnolias?




(The tree next to the building, behind the light).
