Magnolias have been a favorite of many for thousands of years. Typically, they are given from a man to a woman as a gift. Most magnolias are seen with white petals, and occasionally pink, yellow or purple. White stands for purity and perfection. Pink symbolizes youth, innocence and joy. Purple help to achieve wishes of luck and health, and yellow stands for happiness and the bond of friendship.
In Victorian times, delivering flowers was a secret way for lovers to send messages back and forth to each other, magnolias aided in the process. Magnolia plants can grow anywhere from 15 to 80 feet in height, and do not produce nectar, instead they are enriched with pollen to attract pollinators. Today, the magnolia is the state flower of both Louisiana and Mississippi, Mississippi is known as the “Magnolia State” for its abundance of beautiful flowers.
