Magnolia grandiflora:  Magnolia grandiflora
Kavathi chapha
today at Alibag
Grand pictures of a gradiflora flower...
Can you show the undersurface of leaf?? The leaves look slightly different to me.
This appears more close to M.pumila, an erect garden shrub. The local name is correct.
Talauma mutabilis
Kavathi chapha
I think ... got it correct!
The leaf shape (whatever can be seen) is typical I guess.
Recollecting another discussion in our group.
https://groups.google.com/group/indiantreepix/browse_thread/thread/6bc7434431f71da6?hl=en
I am uploading photographs of another Magnolia species separately,
possibly M.grandiflora.
Now correctly known as Magnolia liliifera (L.) Baill.
Incidentally Magnolia liliiflora is a distinct species with flowers purplish on outside.

SYMBIOSIS: 226:  Magnolia Grandiflora used to be a common garden plant at Cooch Behar. Times have changed and people don't have space to maintain a small garden. Still you can see few plants here and there. During my stay here upto 1973 I did not notice its fruits. In 1979 while in Army I saw the fruits (quite a number of them) at a place near Chail ( Simla Hills ).
Recently my friend ... informed me that he saw Jungle Crow eating the seeds of Magnolia Grandiflora. But I have not noticed any bird eating the seeds of this plant earlier. Today I captured an image in which a male Koel is eating the seeds of this plant. Attching that image

Yes, it is Magnolia grandiflora.
 
Magnolia grandiflora from Kashmir: Magnolia grandiflora L., Bull Bay, Southern Magnolia
A very commonly cultivated evergreen tree in Kashmir, with large creamish white fragrant flowers and leathery leaves, rusty on the under side. Commonly planted in Moghul gardens. 
One tree was in Kurukshetra Uni Garden. But even after stay of 6-7 years in KU  we could not see its flowers
I am sending this of a Magnolia grandiflora flower photograph taken in a park in Auckland, New Zealand on 18th December, 2009.
Why the Magnolia grandilora is larger in Eastern part of the country than Kasmir. Though long time ago a mali from Shere-Kashmir-Internation Comfrence Centre tolm me that it is not M. grandiflora. The gradiflora has large
flowers. And I have seen in Shilong that M grandiflora used to have realy large. The span of its flower was sometimes more than a foot. They were highly fragrant.doesany sub family also exist?
It may be one of the several cultivars / hybrids of M. grandiflora.
Pl check this:  http://www.ces.ncsu.edu/depts/hort/consumer/factsheets/trees-new/cult...

The Magnolia grandiflora grown in Kashmir I think has largest flowers I have ever seen. The bud may be as long as 15 cm and fully opened flower may measure 20-25 cm in diam. These are at least one and a half times as large as flowers I have seen in California. In our childhood days we would pluck a bud and keep it in a vase (or simple a tumbler) of water. It would slowly open and may last up to 10 days or so, spreading fragrance all the time. 
The poor tree hardly flowers in Delhi, and if it ever does fully opened flower may scarcely be 10 cm in diam.

Magnolia grandiflora L., Bull Bay, Southern Magnolia
A very commonly cultivated evergreen tree in Kashmir, with large creamish white fragrant flowera and leathery leaves, rusty on the under side. Commonly planted in Moghul gardens.
I have seen specimens of Magnolia grandiflora, some even in California but never seen such magestic trees and such large flowers as seen in Kashmir.
Even flowerbud may be as long as 15 cm, and if plucked and kept in a flower vase it may open and remain fresh even up to 10 days, emitting fragrans all this time. This one was photographed from Nishat Garden


This beautiful tree with large flowers was shot from "Rani Taalab" in Nahan city.. (H.P.)..
Magnolia grandiflora
Great Set of photographs ...
Is this plant indigenous to India?
This tree is native of North America but cultivated in most parts of the world.
The pictures are so good ...! I think it is fragrant too.
Thanks ... for liking.. yes, this is having a sweet smell, especially before sunrise... thanks for your interest too ...

This tree I had initially thought to be some Magnolia sp. but distinctly serrated leaves create confusion. Please help in ID.
I think it is Magnolia grandiflora only, may be a hybrid/cultivar. Majority of the leaves in the pictures show usual entire, wavy margins, and of course the flower is typical. It is interesting to know they have serrations, too


This Tree was seen in one of the Garden at Srinagar (Kashmir).
Magnolia grandiflora

Graceful presentation of a lovely plant..
Yes mostly fruiting M. grandiflora
Magnolia grandiflora, (locally called by gardeners as MAGDOLIA), quite common in gardens & parks of Kashmir Valley

Magnolia grandiflora seen at Lalbagh.


Attached are pictures of a Magnolia captured from Disneyland, Los Angeles, USA in May 2013.
Requested to please provide ID.
Can this be Magnolia grandiflora?
Yes I think so.
Thanks ... for ID validation....

Magnolia grandiflora. California. Mountainview. Jun 2011
Yes ... Very common in that area as also in San Jose, Sunnyvale and SFO
Lovely views of a magnificent plant..

Magnolia grandiflora
These photographs from California show fruits with seeds hanging by slender threads (funiculus).
I did not notice that when I made a comment that trees in Kashmir are much more majestic, taller with larger leaves and much larger flowers, but now I realize that perhaps the specimens from California, which are rarely more than 5 m tall, with smaller leaves and flowers may actually belong to the cultivar 'Little Gem'. Please validate, I am attaching more photographs
I endorse  ... ID i.e. Magnolia grandiflora. Professor ji is always right. I too have similar photographs taken during my visits to California .

OBSERVATION-3 : 1 post by 1 author. Attachments (1).
This year the Magnolia Grandiflora tree in our garden was in full bloom. This plant was brought from Tezpur (Assam) in 2003. Recently I observed a Common Jay butterfly settling on the leaves of this tree. It was selecting the tender leaves. I observed it for few days. Literature says that Magnolia Grandiflora is one of the host plant for this butterfly. Ataching an image of this phenomenon. The tree is under observation to see the larva and the life cycle.

Here is translation of another song. The translator has used CUCKOO, but in the original song the bird is PIKO (KOEL). Translation is by Akashik.

Is the plant Magnolia grandiflora?  

Thank you ... The plant is Magnolia grandiflora.

Magnolia Campbellii from Srinagar gardens: Magnolia Campbellii tree from Srinagar gardens. The flower size is around 25 cm very big one. with pleasant fragrance. Pl validate.
I think, it is a cultivar of Magnolia grandiflora.
Yes Magnolia grandiflora, very common in Moghul Gardens in Kashmir
Yes this is Magnolia grandiflora.... one of my most favorite trees for their spectacular flowers... beautiful to look at, great aroma, subtle; and  makes a great subject for drawing/paintings and stained glass windows now jewelry... and embroidery...
    NOT Magnolia campbelli, I used to have one...
    to my great pleasure and some surprise am finding this tree in all kinds of places in India... In the Hort garden Kolkata..
   Azimgunz West bengal in Temple gardens, beautiful flowers ... photographed them... 
   Murshidabad  estates that are 400 years old (estates, do not know how old the trees are) 
   and yesterday found one in a Jharkhand garden of a temple... seemed to be a young 8-10 year old,  did not have flowers or buds, raining very hard...

Beautiful. M. grandiflora ??
Thanks. Although it looked like Magnolia grandiflora to me as well, not aware of the Species in Atlanta.
the first seed pod is not of grandiflora- that's all i can tell you
Magnolia grandiflora, undoubtedly.

i am not so sure. the number of scales?

Scales are a match as well - http://hort.uconn.edu/detail.php?pid=274

ok, got it. but uconn is not in natural habitat for this southern magnolia if these are locally grown in Storrs, Ct.  i will search for native photos. in the meantime, ok. i go with magnolia grandiflora, since ... pictures are from Georgia, its native range.
