What can you tell me about Magnolia 'Sunsation'?
I planted one many years ago, and while it has gone from a 3' stick to a 10' or so "shrub", it certainly has not begun to look like a tree. I'll admit, I knew nothing about it when I purchased/planted it, other than I liked the blooms (shame on me!). It's been in the ground since 2005, in full sun.
In your experience, does it usually remain in more of a shrub form? Or does it eventually begin to take more of a tree form?
