Now Blooming: Magnolias

See spectacular winter-flowering Magnolias in the Chinese Garden, Japanese Garden, North Vista, and Rose Garden.

Magnolia is an ancient genus of about 200 species, and also the focus of some of The Huntington’s most important botanical conservation work. Their vibrant blooms range in color from white petals flushed in shades of pink to deep rose or purple. Coupled with their showstopping blooms, magnolias are also known for their notable fragrance which can include hints of sweet candy, spicy verbena, tart lemon, citrus-honey or dusty violets.
