In the South, people tend to think of Magnolias as the very large shrubs (or trees) with leathery, evergreen leaves and huge white flowers that bloom in the summer.
However, there are many different types of Magnolias that will thrive from the colder areas of zone 4 all the way through the tropical heat of zone 12.
Some bloom in late winter, some in the spring, and some in the summer.
Many are fragrant and all have beautiful flowers.
