Magnolias bloom around March and April in Georgia. This may vary slightly depending on the amount of sun and shade the plant receives, the type of soil it is planted in, and the exact zone in which it is planted.
One of the most common magnolias in Georgia is the magnolia grandiflora. This magnolia grows as wide as 40 feet. It has large white flowers and thick, glossy leaves. This is an evergreen magnolia, so it won't ever be completely bare. When planting a magnolia, be sure that it is planted in rich soil that has good drainage, and never plant the tree below the original level of the soil.
