Magnificent Magnolia

(L) Magnolia 'Iolanthe' (R) Magnolia x soulangeana

A number of new Magnolia have been planted in the gardens over the last two years, but it was the two oldest that have produced the 'wow factor', located at the exit from the path that takes you from the quad to the Nuffield lawn.

The many goblet shaped blooms are now fading fast having produced a magnificent display over the last few weeks. The warm, dry spring has allowed the flowers to go on blooming, the damage is usually caused by hard frosts, wind and rain, all of which have been of short supply this April.
