Magnolia is a large genus containing 242 accepted species of evergreen or deciduous shrubs and trees in the Magnoliaceae family. These plant are native to East and Southeastern Asia, the Americas and the West Indies. Several species have been extensively cultivated for their large, fragrant, striking, bowl-shaped waxy flowers and many cultivars have been produced. Flowering occurs from late winter to spring, before the leaves develop. They need a sheltered position and protection from cold winds and early frosts.
