Answer: Wish I had a concrete answer for you! Plants respond to their environment; magnolia's go into dormancy when the soil and air temperatures are cold. If your new magnolia has already shed its leaves and is dormant (which is an excellent time to plant because you'll avoid stressing the tree), then it came from a nursery up north where fall has already arrived and winter is nearly there. Plant your magnolia now and then just sit back and relax. It should bloom early next growing season. Enjoy!
