Magnolia - Magnolia
The family magnolia contains some of the most ancient of all flowering trees. Most bloom early in the spring with large cup-like blooms, although star magnolias have smaller more numerous petals. The family magnolia is interesting because it contains both deciduous and evergreen trees.
Add a magnolia to your yard if you are looking for a small to medium sized tree with an elegant shape, large early blooms, and attractive glossy leaves that drop later than many other trees.
