Magnolia Blossom

Magnolias are inextricably associated with the Southern United States. The definitely do not grow in Mesa or anyplace in Southern Arizona. These large beautiful flowers would fry in an instant. I have seen large specimens growing as far north as Utah Valley in Central Utah and in Northern California. Unfortunately, I would classify these plants as large messy trees and not something I would plant in my own yard. But that doesn't stop me from admiring them in places where I do not have to rake up what falls.
