Blooming Magnolias in the springtime are a spectacular sight. The magnolia family accounts for about 200 species distributed mainly in two regions: Asia (from the Himalayas through China to Japan, and Southeast Asia) and the Americas.
Magnolia was named after French botanist Pierre Magnol , the man behind the current scheme of botanical classification.
Magnolia is believed to be one of the most ancient flowering plants. Dinosaurs saw Magnolias blossoming. There were no bees back then but beetles, creatures three times older than the magnolia, extracted the magnolia�s protein-rich pollen, as they still do nowadays.
