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.

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.
