Read About Magnolias: Books, Articles, Symposia, and Other Online Resources

Magnolia sieboldii

On this page you will find what we think are some of the best resources on magnolias -- many of which you will find online.

One of the best ways to learn about magnolias is to join the Magnolia Society to receive our twice-yearly Magnolia: journal of the American Magnolia Society with all of the latest news on new species, cultivars, and propagation methods. When you become a member, you will also gain access to our entire online archive of MSI journals going back to the 1960s.

Just getting started with magnolias? This "Botanical Buzz" podcast featuring San Francisco Botanical Garden docent Maggie McDowell will give you some insight into the ancient origins of magnolias.
