Southern Magnolia planted in Paris

While visiting Isabelle’s Alma Mater, the Sorbonne University in Paris we happened upon some cultivated Magnolia grandiflora in large planters in front of the main entrance. Our American tree being showcased in a high profile location!

Visiting Isabelle’s family in the Paris suburb of Bussy-St-Georges we noticed a blooming Southern magnolia in the back yard, a cultivated specimen. The one flower is filling the yard with the pleasant scent. Hopefully it won’t jump the fence one day and become invasive.
