Magnolia Grandiflora Galissonniere
Magnolia Grandiflora Galissonniere, also known as the Southern Magnolia or simply Galissoniere, is a cultivar of the evergreen magnolia tree. It’s renowned for its large, glossy, leathery leaves and striking, fragrant flowers.
The Southern magnolia displays large, dark green, glossy leaves that are leathery in texture. These leaves are oval to elliptical in shape, with a rusty brown or velvety brown underside. The foliage tends to maintain its lustre year-round, providing an attractive appearance even in the winter months. The tree produces large, showy, creamy-white flowers that are notably fragrant. These flowers can span up to 20cm in diameter and typically exude a sweet, lemony scent, attracting bees and other pollinators. The blossoms often emerge in late spring to early summer and continue to bloom intermittently through the season.
This magnolia cultivar thrives in moist, well-drained soils and prefers full sun to partial shade. It’s relatively tolerant of various soil types and environmental conditions, making it a popular choice in gardens and landscapes. The Magnolia Grandiflora Galissonniere is often utilized as an ornamental tree in parks, gardens, and larger landscapes due to its attractive foliage and impressive, fragrant flowers. As with other magnolia species, it adds a touch of elegance and beauty to its surroundings.
