Magnolia 'Brett'
It actually came about as a result of a failed attempt to cross M 'Lesley Jane' with 'Forrests Pink'.  One seed did germinate from this cross and was very obviously a hybrid between the two, but the other seed that germinated was very unlike the hybrid, and I truly believe that this was an apomictic or perhaps open pollinated  seedling which was completely unaffected by the pollen of 'Lesley Jane'.  I named it ' Brett' after a dog I used to have.  Last year was it's fourth year of flowering, which means it was ten years old at that time, and it is now about 7M tall.

Magnolia 'Burgundy Spire'
M. ‘Yellow Bird’ X M. ‘Apollo’. I was impressed with its very narrow growth habit as a young seedling and thrilled to see it bloom with a clear burgundy exterior and a cream interior. The nine tepals remain upright and do not flop as the flowers age. Because of its abundance of lateral flower buds, it remains in bloom for several weeks. This is a very desirable magnolia for limited garden space. ( text Dennis Ledvina)
