How cold hardy are the magnolia grandiflora (Southern Magnolia) cultivars ‘Bracken’s Brown Beauty’ and ‘Edith Bogue’? When I look online for information pertaining to their cold hardiness, what I’ve found is that some websites claim that they’re hardy all the way to zone 5, while others seem to suggest that they are not hardy north of zone 7, and the other websites unanimously suggest that they are hardy to zone 6.I have seen these cultivars being sold at the local nurseries across the greater Indianapolis area since at least 2013. I have also had sightings of magnolia grandiflora (Presumably ‘BBB’ and ‘Edith Bogue’) here and there throughout the Indianapolis area(You can find them in people’s yards if you know where to look) and saw one of these trees for the first time ever in Indianapolis in late 2003. I would like some verification on the hardiness of the hardiest southern magnolia cultivars, any and all insights would be greatly appreciated, thanks
