    Above excerpt from HILLIER MANUAL OF TREES & SHRUBS taken from description of bigleaf magnolia (Magnolia macrophylla), as of course it would be. Under Ashe magnolia (M. macrophylla subsp. ashei) the MANUAL says “in all respects a miniature M. macrophylla, with smaller leaves, flowers and fruits.”

    Ahhhhhh, the magnolias….
    If ever there were a reminder that life can be sweet, it’s a magnolia tree in bloom. Even the word “magnolia”….
