Tree Series #13

Magnolia “APOLLO”

This has to be one of the most amazing magnolia trees I have seen. The two-tone colours catch your eyes from a distance and the flowers are enormous.

    This is surely the most impressive Magnolia I have ever seen. It’s a shame they don’t last very long. They come, smile and then they are gone, but not completely. What a heavy fall down load to clear up! 🙂

      I know what you mean, but they are so beautiful. This one is ideal for a medium sized garden. Have you got magnolia at Cley?

      1. Dina says:

        No. In Bonn there are lots of Magnolias, in every second garden there’s a solitaire Magnolia greeting the sun and looking good. 🙂
        When my mom came the first time from Norway and saw one she was desperately wanting to get one for Fredrikstad, but unfortunately they don’t love the Norwegian winters.

          No, they are not keen on the cold and frost destroys the flowers. I do recall almond blossom in Norway though, which was very beautiful.

  2. I’ve never seen this color either. Does it have a good smell?

    1. Heyjude says:

      The scent is not powerful but incensey, rather like a lily. The whole garden was full of scent!

    They do look gigantic Jude. How big are they? so beautiful.

  4. Wonderful pictures – so pleased to find you!

      I check out your posts regularly, but often don’t have time to comment (and can’t leave a like to say I have been), one day I’ll get around to checking out where you have been. I have already compiled a list of gardens I have to see from your posts!

    To me magnolias are the most elegant flowers and when they have a fragrance too . . . perfection.

    1. Heyjude says:

      And here in Cornwall they are everywhere!

    Heaven on earth, these magnolias. Thanks for sharing lovely blooms!

      They have been fantastic in Cornwall this year. So many varieties now too.
