"Sweetheart" ~ Magnolia

Spring is a wonderful time and perhaps the magnolias that flower in the spring are amongst the most special and beautiful.

Magnolias are one of the loveliest and most impressive springtime flowers. Coming early in the season, with their thick, waxy petals forming goblets on bare branches, a mature magnolia in full bloom is a breathtaking sight.

 

All of the spring flowering magnolias have wonderful silky buds which form in winter and are a reminder of the wonders to some.

 

The beautiful bowl shaped flowers are held erect on the branches. They are a rich pink on the outside and pale pink on the inside.
