Don't loan me your copy; I'll burn it!


The is a book called "A Tree Grows in Brooklyn" (or something close).
That tree is a Magnolia, and gave name to the Magnolia Center.  I always
imagined it as a Southern, even though I know they aren't supposed to
survive (all the way) up there.

Does anybody know what species of Magnolia that tree is?

Lisa, are you with us?
