Magnolias: A Gardener's Guide
Revered by gardeners since ancient times, when they were brought into cultivation in Asia, magnolias have lost none of their allure. In fact, a steady supply of new magnolias has become available in recent years, from both newly discovered species and newly created hybrids, making the genus a source of greater horticultural excitement than ever before. Though loosely based on the author's 1989 book of the same name, Magnolias is so extensively revised and expanded as to be considered an entirely new book. This highly illustrated survey of the genus includes species and hybrids, extensive information on cultivation and propagation, and more than 150 fine photographs. The appendices list societies, plants for specific landscape situations, plants that have received awards, and places to see and buy magnolias.

Review: MagnoliasUser Review - William - Goodreads
Everything you ever wanted to know about Magnolias. Reading this book makes me want to grow more than the one we have. It is interesting to note that Magnolias are part of a family that may be the oldest of all the angiosperms. Read full review
