  • Pictorial Record

    Of the Tasmanian Arboretum Magnolia Collection.

    Was recently asked if I would make a record of the varied species as they came into flower. Unfortunately this year, that has coincided with a patch of inclement weather with lots of wind and rain which has adversely affected the quality of the blooms.

    However here is a selection from some of the trees to date:

      Well done Greg. Very good photos - colours are splendid. In my yard we only have one variety - Little Gem which is a dwarf cultivar. Originally developed in 1952 by Steed's Nursery in North Carolina (after I was born!)

      Why do they put expiry dates on cartons of sour cream?

        Great record of professional quality. The city of Lithgow uses Magnolia trees as street planting. A treat to see them each year.

          Thank you both, I still have quite a few more to get and some will have to wait until next year as the weather got the best of them before I had a chance. The large North American species I suspect will be next.
