Magnolia is a large genus containing around 320 evergreen or deciduous shrubs and tree species in the Magnoliaceae family. These plants are native to East and southeastern Asia, the Americas and the West Indies. Flowering occurs from late winter to spring, before the leaves develop. Several species have been extensively cultivated for their large, fragrant, striking, bowl-shaped waxy flowers and many cultivars have been produced. They need a sheltered position and protection from cold winds and early frosts.
