Magnolias
The many species of Magnolia include trees and large shrubs, both deciduous and evergreen. They are native to eastern Asia and the eastern Americas north of the equator. They characteristically have showy, fragrant flowers that are white, pink, purple, green, or yellow. The flowers are followed by showy red or pink fruits displaying red, orange, or pink seeds. Taxonomists named magnolias to commemorate Pierre Magnol, a 17th century French botanist and since their introduction to European gardeners in 1688, magnolias have been highly prized garden plants and have been developed by nurserymen to offer some superb hybrids and cultivars.
