POTD: Magnoliaceae

Posted on Updated on

It’s genus is Magnolia but, this is a hybrid tree with Magnolia Denudata (Lilytree or Yulan Magnolia) and Magnolia Liliiflora (Mulan Magnolia, Purple Magnolia, Red Magnolia, Lily Magnolia, Tulip Magnolia, Jane Magnolia, Woody-Orchid or Japanese Magnolia) as parents. Whew! That is longer than the last one. ~Vic

POTD: Silk Tree

Posted on

Fabaceae family, Mimosoideae clade, Albizia genus and Julibrissin species. It is commonly referred to as a Mimosa tree but, that isn’t quite right. It’s also called a Persian silk tree, a pink silk tree and a pink siris. North Carolina State University considers it to be invasive. It’s still pretty and it smells so good. ~Vic
