Magnolia tree

Magnolia is a genus of 210 species. The Angiosperm taxonomical names Magnoliophyta (division) and Magnoliopsida (class) come from this genus. Charles Plumier gave a flowering tree from the island of Martinique the genus name Magnolia, after French botanist Pier Magnol. Many magnolias that have pretty flowers are used as street trees.[1]
