Very nice! My father planted a M. soulangeana on the E lawn of our house in Aurora, and it always grew well, flowered every year, and in those rare Denver springs where it warms gradually, it flowered for weeks!I like the delicate flower of your species / variety.
David, thanks for relating your story about magnolia success! There are some gorgeous, mature specimens of the pink flowering saucer magnolia - M.soulangeana - throughout the Denver area. They're real traffic stoppers.
I think you have the real Magnolia stellata there: or possibly M. x loebneri 'Dr. Merrill': the latter is usually more treeform and can get massive. How tall was this one?
This magnolia is fairly young - it was planted about three years ago - and is only about 5 feet tall. It definitely has a shrub form, so perhaps that clinches the ID as M. stellata...Thanks for the help, Mr. K!
