“The cultivation of magnolias in gardens dates back at least to 600 AD, records showing that they were popular in large Chinese gardens. Magnolias are named after the French botanist Pierre Magnol although the original plant which took his name was not in fact a magnolia. It was William Sherard who correctly attributed the name to the magnolia species.”
