      Magnolias grow in the warmest parts of Vermont, in protected areas. The magnolia in the pic is the most spectacular and largest I’ve seen in Vermont. It’s on the southern side of a house, on a south facing slope in a warm microc-climate.
      I never see magnolias growing in exposed areas. But if it keeps warming up every year, they might eventually be everywhere, who knows?
