Magnolias

Prized worldwide for their showy, fragrant flowers and attractive forms, Magnolias can be deciduous or evergreen trees or shrubs, all adding breathtaking beauty in the spring or summer garden when in full bloom. Some are extremely cold-hardy (Star Magnolia) while others prefer more temperate climates (Southern Magnolia). Give them some sun and a rich, well-drained soil and they will become one of the glories of your garden.
