My Magnolia plant variety Susan which is about 4 years old formed its flowers in spring but they never opened and just dried up and died. New leaves never formed either. I now have a plant that looks dead apart from about four leaves which have now appeared on my 3ft plant. Shall I give up on it or prune the dead wood back to where the leaves have appeared. I have anothere magnolia Starletta which is doing really well.
