History: Magnolia is an ancient genus. Having evolved before bees appeared, the flowers developed to encourage pollination by beetles. As a result, the carpels (One of the ovule-bearing structures in an angiosperm that comprises the innermost whorl of a flower) of Magnolia flowers are tough to avoid damage by eating and crawling beetles. Fossilized specimens of M. acuminata have been found dating to 20 million years ago, and of plants identifiably belonging to the Magnoliaceae dating to 95 million years ago. Another primitive aspect of Magnolias is their lack of distinct sepal. There are about 80 different species of Magnolia that are native to the eastern United States and southeastern Asia. Over half of these are in cultivation around the world and many selections and hundreds of named hybrids have been made by breeders seeking better features. Magnolia has been used traditionally in temple ceremonies to mark births, deaths and holidays.
