I've had two Jacqueline Postills. The first one was grafted and the graft failed. The second one a really cold winter killed. I haven't seen any for sale since. I have a self sown seedling, fingers crossed .

Have you a photo of the black bugs. ?

Are they pollen beetles?

Magnolia grandiflora flowers do turn brown when they get wet as they are about to open. They only really look good in  a dry spell.
