Magnolia

Magnolia

Magnolia is a large genus of about 210 species named after botanist Pierre Magnol. This is one of the oldest species of trees having evolved before bees appeared, the flowers developed to encourage pollination by beetles. To avoid damage from pollinating beetles, the carpels of the flowers are extremely tough. Specimens of "Magnolia acuminata" fossils have been found dating to 20 million years ago, and of plants identifiably belonging to the "Magnoliaceae" dating to 95 million years ago. The natural range of Magnolia species is very wide with a center in east and southeast Asia and a secondary center in eastern North America, Southeastern North America the West Indes, and some species in South America.
