It is commonly used in gardening as an ornamental tree due to the elegance of its appearance and the perfume of its enormous flowers.


The magnolia grows naturally almost always in somewhat swampy forest areas, near rivers and swamps or in low-lying forests near the coast. It is sensitive to intense and prolonged cold, but also to environmental dryness, which is why it prefers warm-temperate places. Native to the southeastern United States.
