Magnolia tree

My mother has a very large 25 year old magnolia, it blooms well every year and has had to be pruned quite often as it is so prolific, however, this year after flowering as usual ( it is now mid-June) the leaves are curling up! they are still green and there is nothing inside the leaf when one unfolds it. It is worryuing my mother who loves the plant very much

On plant Magnolia



Has the magnolia never done this before? We have a very old magnolia, while it flowers the leaves fall all over the yard and the tree looks sorta wilty, when the flowers stop, the leaves will stop falling and the tree regains life. Most of the leaves that fall are brown though.
