Golden Rain Trees - horrible mess all year long.
Magnolia tree cones contain seeds do magnolia cones fall off trees by songbirds and other wildlife. When the fruit matures into cones, the cones open and the birds pick out the seeds and flesh. The reddish flesh is high in fat, fueling migratory birds in their travels. As the cones mature, they can be picked off the tree.
Jun 20, In the fall of the year after the flowers are long gone from a magnolia tree, the seed pods have an interesting surprise in store. Magnolia seed pods, which resemble exotic-looking cones, spread open to reveal bright red berries, and the tree comes to life with birds, squirrels, and other wildlife that relish these tasty fruits. Could I ask for some free advice? I am a homeowner in South Western Virginia we just bought a magnolia tree to plant at our new house.
I am concerned that we got the correct variety.
Lipnancy--Thanks for stopping by.
It is the dd Blanchard variety. I do not wish to plant the conical shape variety, but rather the one that grows very.
