Magnificent MAGNOLIAS!

Flowering Magnolias - Sept

Flowering Magnolias – A wonderful flowering season for the Magnolia this year!

After a rather windy, wild week in the south the blooms are now a memory… Stunning larger blooms cover the trees and also have a beautiful light perfume. A great tree for the smaller garden as well as larger open spaces as shown with these large old Magnolia in Queens Park earlier this month. Some of these trees must be close to 100 years old!

Interesting Magnolia Facts 

Magnolias symbolize dignity and nobility. In ancient China, magnolias were thought to be the perfect symbols of womanly beauty and gentleness. Also white magnolias are commonly seen in bridal bouquets because the flowers are thought to reflect and emphasize the bride’s purity and nobility.

Magnolia trees originate from Southeast Asia and North America, but are now almost in all continents in the world because of their beauty.
