I also have this but I assumed it was because we had severe frost and snow when the flowers were just budding.
I also have a purple magnolia that is about 20 years old and flowered really well every year but now looks as though it is dead as it has no buds and no leaves. A few well established trees in my neighbours garden have also died.
If anyone has any thoughts it would be appreciated.
