Southern Magnolia Trees Bloom In Late Spring Or Early Summer


All over the South, in the Springtime, you can see and smell the blooming Southern Magnolia Tree and what a sight it is to behold!

The fragrance of the magnolia blossom is like none other and hard to describe but one whiff and you will know what I am talking about. The blossoms are beautiful from the time the bud forms until they are in full bloom. These sometimes huge blossoms give a new meaning to the term White on White. Just look at all the shades of white against all the gorgeous shades of green. Isn't it amazing.Note: This page was created on May 28, 2009 and is updated on a regular basis with new Southern Magnolia Tree Pictures and information. Hope you enjoy and thank you for visiting.

What is the Southern Magnolia Tree?

The Southern Magnolia leaves are so beautiful and the blossoms smell wonderful. I love to cut the blossoms and bring them inside but they don't last long at all, unfortunately.

According to Wikipedia about Magnolia Grandiflora, the Southern Magnolia Tree is also called the Bull Bay Magnolia but the scientific name is Magnolia Grandiflora and it is natural to the Southeastern United States. Click the link to learn more from Wikipedia about the Southern Magnolia Tree. Wikipedia says that the timber is heavy and hard and often used for furniture but I don't think I have ever had a piece of Magnolia Wood furniture. Hmmmmmmm. I am going to have to check on that.The Southern Magnolia Tree is often seen on College Campuses throughout the Southeastern United States.Photo by OhMe

I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. I would love to hear about your Magnolia Tree in the Guestbook below.

Magnolia Trees are wonderful for making memories for your children and grandchildren because they are sturdy and will live through several generations. Even though the one that I passed on my way to elementary school did not belong to us, it felt like it did. Today when I stand under that wonderful old tree, the memories just gush forth and it is such a good feeling.

This is a great gift for a new homeowner and then they can watch it grow and get bigger year after year and remember their first year in their new home.

 

This Majestic Southern Magnolia Tree Was Standing When I Was A Child - Many Magnolias are in bloom in our town but this one will always be my favorite

Yes, this Majestic Magnolia Tree was on the route we took to school back in the 50's and I have climbed up it's branches and absorbed its breath taking beauty and inhaled its unforgettable aroma.I would estimate that this stately tree is at least 40 feet tall and 30 feet wide.

Note: Due to the fact that this tree was interfering with driver's vision, it was trimmed dramatically. I just hated to see it happen but certainly understand why it was necessary. I don't adapt easily to change so it has been difficult to take.Photo by OhMe

The Strong Limbs of the Southern Magnolia Tree Demand You To Look In Awe

I think a swing would be wonderful hanging from one of these strong limbs. When I was young we had a tire swing on our Mimosa Tree and I did some of best thinking on that swing. There is just something comforting about being under or on these strong limbs. The sturdy limbs look like they are inviting me to come closer. I always felt like I was being embraced by mother nature or the good Lord above.

The owner of this tree today is a descendent of the person who owned it when I was a child. I have had fun sharing my memories of their tree with the family. They have a young son and I hope he is making lots of fun memories at "my" tree, too. Maybe I should spend some time with him and tell him how much this tree means to me.

Plant A Southern Magnolia In Honor Of Your Child

We planted our Southern Magnolia Tree when our son was born so it has always been known as his tree. He grew by leaps and bounds and so did his tree. It is fun to take a picture of your child standing by the tree every year on their birthday. Our son is now 34 years old and measures 6 ft 4 inches. His Magnolia Tree is over 30 feet tall. He still calls it "my tree" and is very proud of it.

All the shades of green really give the tree depth beyond comprehension. The new growth is a bright and shining green with the older growth various stages of Olive to Hunter greens. It is an evergreen so we often cut the Magnolia Leaves at Christmastime to use with our decorations. After washing off all the dirt and dust, I shine them up a bit with Cooking Oil and they look so pretty on my mantle.

My mom decorated with Magnolia Leaves and Pine Cones. I remember one year when I was probably around 12 years old, the local Garden Club decorated our new home for a Holiday House Tour. They used shiny Magnolia Leaves on the mantle and pinecones. I feel sure it was my mom's idea for she was very active in the garden club. The pinecones were sprayed with just a touch of gold and they used a thick rope that was sprayed gold, too. The rope intertwined among the cones and leaves. It was really very beautiful and so unique.

The Magnolia leaves are wonderful to decorate with. I use the leaves on my Mantle every Christmas. I even cut some Southern Magnolia Tree branches and stick them in the planters around the house to replace the flowers that have died over the winter. They hold up for about the whole month of December. Other decorations or plants can be stuck in the planters with the Magnolia branches such as holly or Nandina berries.

 

Reflections of a Mississippi Magnolia- A Life in Poems - by Patricia Neely Dorsey

I received a message on Face Book from Patricia Neely-Dorsey directing me to her link Patricia Neely-Dorsey "A CELEBRATION OF THE SOUTH AND THINGS SOUTHERN" about this book and I am so glad that I did. It sounds wonderful and even though we have never met, I can tell that we share an appreciation for the beautiful Southern Magnolia.She also said that she enjoyed reading this page:Update: I ordered Patricia's book and treasure it.

Reflections of a Mississippi Magnolia-A Life in Poems
Reflections of a Mississippi Magnolia-A Life in Poems

On her website, Patricia Neely-Dorsey says this about her book:My book Reflections of a Mississippi Magnolia is a true celebration of the south and things southern. Using childhood memories, personal thoughts and dreams, I attempt to give a positive glimpse into the southern way of life. There are so many negative connotations associated with Mississippi and the south in general. I want to show a flip side of the coin.There is much to love about this much maligned and misunderstood part of our country. I would really love for you to get to KNOW Mississippi (and the south) in a different light and I want to introduce you. I invite you to Meet Mississippi Through Poetry, Prose and the written word.

      These are one of my favorite trees. I noticed many years ago, further down on our street several gorgeous pinkish flowering trees and was surprised to see them growing in our cooler climate. They're probably a slightly different variety than your Whites. But I would plant one if we ever moved again.

      My wife and I planted a Southern Magnolia 12 years ago on our Anniversary when we moved into a new home and so we affectionately refer to it as the Anniversary Tree. Their beauty and aroma is greater than any other tree you will find. Great lens.

      These look like the new flower pictures I took. I hope they are magnolias that I have since I called them that. Mine are pink, but they look like yours!

      The magnolia trees are wonderful! We have them here where I live in Victoria BC as well, they are blooming now. Great lens.
