Magnolia trees are ancient. Appearing before bees, they evolved due to pollination by the movements of beetles.
Their dark green leaves have an oval shape and are covered with a layer of wax. Their bark is brown and smooth when they’re young and scaly as they mature. Blooms occur annually in the spring producing white flowers that give off a notable fragrance. Magnolias love wet, even soggy soils. Mulch around the base to ensure moisture is sufficient. Fertileize in the spring with a slow release fertilizer after the flower buds begin to show.
