Altezza della pianta: 30-60cm
Genus of about 125 species of deciduous or evergreen trees and shrubs found in the woods and scrublands of the Himalayas, Asia, North and South America. Magnolia grandiflora is a splendid evergreen tree which in optimal conditions reaches 25-30 m in height with very expansive foliage. The trunk and branches have smooth, dark bark. The leaves are lanceolate, leathery, with marked veining and reach 20 cm in size. In some varieties the leaves have a brown underside. In late spring numerous flowers appear which are up to 30 cm large and creamy white in colour. These develop at the apex of each branch, are solitary, short-lived but intensely scented; their fragrance is so strong and intoxicating that it is not recommended to place them in closed environments, especially in bedrooms. The fruits, which are similar to pine cones, release the red seeds in autumn, which are very attractive in this season.
