Merrill Magnolia to honor Cindy Heath

A Merrill magnolia tree has been planted at Canillas to honor former Lebanon Parks and Recreation Director, Cindy Heath. The magnolia is a replacement for the original crab apple tree planted when Cindy retired; that tree was damaged by a hungry critter several winters ago.  Henry Homeyer, the “Gardening Guy”,  has this to say about the Merrill magnolia: ” My Merrill magnolia is one of my favorite trees. Mine is about 20 or 25 years old, and is roughly 30 feet tall with a 20 foot spread. When it blooms the flowers are bountiful – a thousand, perhaps – and magnificent. Each blossom is about 3 inches across and lightly fragrant. I recommend them as specimen trees in the middle of a lawn or field in full sun.” Our new magnolia is now planted, in full sun, and we look forward to a springtime of many fragrant magnolia blooms.
