Today we’re highlighting magnolias, the elegant matrons of the spring debut. These grand dames are full and fragrant in the landscape! They come to the party early, blooming on bare branches in March and April before other trees leaf out.

Helpful to note, is that there are a number of magnolia species: some flower in early spring, others not until summer. Pay attention to bloom time when selecting a magnolia as your ornamental tree of choice.
