Deritations. The name Magnolia was given to this genus by Linnæus in honour of M. Pierre Magnol, a distinguished batanist of Montpelier, in France. The German name, Gurkenbaum, means Cucumber-tree; and Bieberbaum signifies Beaver-tree, which is sometimes applied in America to the Magnolia glauca.

Generic Characters. Calyx of 3 deciduous sepals, that resemble petals. Corolla of from 6–9 petals. Sta

mens numerous. Pistils numerous. Carpels disposed compactly in spikes, opening by the external angle, 1-2-seeded, permanent. Seeds baccate, somewhat cordate, pendulous, hanging out beyond the carpels by a very long umbilical thread. Trees and shrubs with large, entire leaves, and solitary, terminal, large, odoriferous flowers.Don, Miller's Dict.

HE genus Magnolia embraces the most admirable productions of the vegetable world. All the species are highly ornamental, and may generally be cultivated in most parts of Britain, the middle and southern states of Europe and of North America, without protection during winter. But, in Russia and the northern parts of Britain, Germany, Sweden, and of the United

States, the less hardy kinds are green-house plants. Few of the species ripen their seeds in England, but most of them do in France. The American species are generally produced from seeds; but those from Asia are increased by layers, or by inarching, and in some cases from seeds.

Geographical Distribution. The native country of the most hardy magnolias is North America; but there are some hardy species found in China, Japan, and probably in Hindoostan. No tree of this genus has hitherto been found indigenous to Europe, Africa, South America, nor Australia; and the geographical range of the order Magnoliaceæ in America and Asia is comparatively limited.
