Hello Everyone - I live near Allen, TX a little north east of Dallas. I have a large yard that has young shade trees in the background (bur oaks, Chinese pistacios, texas ashes and lacebark elms - about 10 trees in total). Behind the pool I was thinking cold hardy palms, bananas, and cannas. My wife would also like a magnolia or two.
Any thoughts on a magnolia near a pool? Are they messy? Stain things? What kind would you recommend?
Any thoughts on if magnolias would go with palms, bananas and cannas?
