Yes, some magnolia species can grow in NE Pennsylvania. Here is the problem you will have with your seeds. Virginia is one or two cold hardiness zones warmer than your area. That seed is from a tree that does not necessarily have the genetics to survive your winters, even though the species may be listed as hardy in your zone. The best I can tell you is to try it, but you could lose the tree in a cold winter. Though most varieties of Magnolia can be propagated by seed, they will produce trees that are slow to flower and differ from the source tree. Yes, those are the seeds you see inside the buds. Magnolia seeds have a fleshy outer pulp and a hard inner seed shell. You should remove this outer pulp first for best germination rates. Soak the seeds in water for a couple of days, changing the water every day. Remove any pulp and dry with a tissue. Plant immediately indoors or store in the refrigerator in a zip-lock bag with moist sand/vermiculite and sow in spring. Remember to not plant too deep. Sow seeds no more than two times their diameter deep in your soil. .
