Question: i planted a magnolia tree 3 yrs ago, and it has never had a single bloom. it looks very healthy, the leaves keep producing, but no bloom. someone said if it is a male tree, there will be no blooms. is this true, and if so, how do you tell if you have a male or female tree? thanks, trish in charleston, s.c.
Answer: Magnolias can take several years to become fully rooted and established after transplanting and begin blooming. As long as your tree is growing well and seems healthy it is just a matter of time.
