Magnolia Beauties

Nothing portrays the beauty of Mother Nature at her best like the magnolia. Even up here in the northern climes of the U.S., we have magnolias that can live through our zone 5 winters.

If you would like a magnificent magnolia wreath such as this, 
you'll have to order it from Australia, here. Isn't it beautiful?

The first magnolia to bloom here is the magnolia stellata. The blooms do not last long, but they are blowsy and as white as can be.

Magnolia soulangiana opens next. There are many varieties; this next magnolia blooms a creamy white.

You are probably most familiar with this coloring:

The last to bloom in our garden is the Sweet Bay magnolia and it graces us with its scent and blooms all summer.

Long live the magnolias and their stunning beauty!

Thank you to Cindy at My Romantic Home!


  1. This has to be the most luxurious flowering tree. That wreath is amazing, great post, thanks Ann

  2. Gorgeous! I would love to have a magnolia tree. I just love the blooms and the scent. We would have planted a few, but they just grow so slow and we needed some instant screening.

  3. Wow! That's stunning!!! Pity we have no way to have a tree (not to mention a magnolia tree) here!!
