Q.What Is This On My Magnolia Tree?

Zone Melbourne Australia | Anonymous added on March 28, 2024 | Answered

Attached are some photos of our Black Tupil Magnolia tree which is about 5 years old. These seedpod-like things appeared after the first flowers last spring and have just grown bigger and redder. As we have never seen these before, I thought I should get some advice as to what them may be caused by & whether or not we should do anything about them. We didn’t get one for every flower, maybe about a quarter or a fifth of flowers produced them. Many thanks
