What Is Magnolia?
If you’re like most people, you probably think of accent walls and tray ceilings when you hear the term ‘magnolia’. I know I certainly did! Some even think of southern belles and massive white flowers when they hear the word. But there’s a lot more to this tree than meets the eye. This pretty hue is popping up everywhere, and it’s not just a passing fad; magnolia is here to stay. For starters, did you know that there are over 80 species of magnolia? That’s right – this is not a one-size-fits-all tree. In fact, there’s a magnolia out there for nearly everyone!
In the early spring, when the weather is still cool and the trees are just starting to bloom, one of the first flowers to appear is the magnolia. With its large, striking blossoms, the magnolia is a welcome sight after a long winter. The magnolia is a member of the Magnoliaceae family, which includes about 210 species of trees and shrubs. The magnolia is native to North America, Central America, and parts of Asia.
Magnolia In India
The southern United States is home to many beautiful Magnolia trees. But did you know that these stunning flowers actually originated in India?
That’s right – the Magnolia is an Indian native!
While the tree may be most associated with the American South, it actually thrives in a variety of climates, including the tropical climate of India.
