Spring is here!


The early-flowering magnolias in the wide surroundings of the Plant Palace, in the Dahlgren Arboretum, and in the Rhododendron Forest signal the start of spring. Many species bloom as early as the end of March, even before there are leaves on the trees. Some plants produce large ornamental flowers, others small or wonderfully fragrant blooms. Late-flowering magnolias appear several months later. These only flower after they have put on leaves.

The Botanic Garden has a collection of dozens of wild magnolias and cultivated varieties with fantastic names such as cucumber magnolia (Magnolia acuminata), umbrella magnolia (Magnolia tripetala), or lily pad magnolia (Magnolia liliiflora). There are also yellow magnolias, which can be discovered behind the Plant Palace.
