    There are about 100 species classified of deciduous and evergreen trees and shrubs from East Asia and southern North America. The genus was named after French botanist Pierre Magnol. The alternate leaves are generally oval and smooth-edged. The flowers are generally large, fragrant, and solitary. They produce aggregate follicle (pod-like) fruits with large seeds that hang by slender threads when ripe. A single scale covers each bud, and stipule scars encircle the twigs.
