SF’s Very First Magnolias of 2022 Are Blooming
Thanks to San Francisco Botanical Garden for sharing the news that the first of their beautiful magnolias are blooming.
One of San Francisco’s most breathtaking natural marvels, the annual bloom of more than 200 rare and historic magnolias with trees reaching 80 feet, is typically at its peak from mid-January through March at the SF Botanical Garden.
Velvety silver buds on the often bare branches of these elegant trees, many rare and historic, open into dazzling pink, magenta, and white flowers, filling the wintery garden with dramatic splashes of color and sweetly fragrant scents.
Welcome the New Year at the Garden
The first flowers on our heritage Magnolia campbellii trees are out now providing encouraging signs of hope, and excitement is building for the upcoming Magnificent Magnolias season mid-January through March.
