Star magnolia

Hello to all.
I have a star magnolia tree in my back yard and under it is some seedlings, and I am wondering if these are Star magnolia plants or just weeds. Do you know where I can find an image of a star magnolia seedling ?(about 10" tall) Thanks

Check the leaves are they the same shape (although smaller) check the growing tip is the same shape as the parent plant if so then its the same and a magnolia

RE: Star magnolia

I checked the leaves, but could not tell, because I have seen some seedlings that do look different from the parent. On this seedling the first leaves to grow are big , but then out of the top the leaves look different.

You could post a picture to the "name that plant forum."
