Our pink magnolia started dying after my little sister passed a way, leaving my dad a broken heart. He loved this tree so much. Then the tree died completely several months before my dad passed a way. Who knows our magnolia tree grew back recently more beautiful then ever. My father would be so happy if he were here to witness the new life of his gorgeous flowers. ~Jendhamuni
Magnolia is very attractive flowering plant that belongs to the family Magnoliaceae. There are around 210 species of magnolia that differ in size, shape, color of the flower and type of habitat. Magnolia trees originate from Southeast Asia and North America, but they have been naturalized to almost all continents in the world because of their beauty. Magnolia usually grows on acidic soils that are rich in nutrients, in areas that provide enough moisture and direct sunlight. It is often planted in parks and on the golf courses because of its ornamental morphology and ability to provide shade. Unfortunately, some species of magnolia are facing uncertain future due to habitat loss as a result of increased human activity.
