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.

The Curator of the Royal Horticultural Society's Garden at Wisley, England, presents a thoroughly horticultural approach for the beginning gardener to these beautiful flowering trees.From the Publisher:
Jim Gardiner is president of the Magnolia Society and curator of the renowned Royal Horticultural Societys Garden at Wisley, Great Britain, so is well suited to write such a handbook. A skilled photographer, Gardiner has assembled a collection of more than 150 breathtaking color photographs from his own and others collections. Gracious line drawings and maps also complement his text. For all its beauty, however, the chief strength of Magnolias: A Gardeners Guide is its detailed examination of the charms and challenges of growing the variety of magnolias available to contemporary gardeners. Full treatment is given to all significant species and hybrids, and particular attention is paid to cultural concerns such as siting and selecting, propagation methods, and coping with pests and diseases. Where to see and buy magnolias, who to contact, and a guide to selecting the best magnolias complete the book. No keen gardener will want to be without this vital information on such an esteemed family of garden shrubs and trees.
