“Still Magnolia” — Flower Magazine, Summer 2009
The timeless and venerated magnolia tree is a favorite of many landscape designers, and it is especially venerated in the South. It creates a statement in almost any setting.
The magnolia family is one of the oldest trees in existence. Because magnolias are so old, their flowers do not have true petals and sepals; instead, they have petal-like tepals. Also, the flowers do not produce real nectar but attract pollinating beetles with fragrant and sugary secretions.
