Wednesday, July 7, 1:00-2:30 pm. The Beauty and Science of the Magnolia Family with Edward M. Barrows, Professor of Biology, Georgetown University.

 

Washington’s Cherry blossoms are in the limelight each year, while Magnolias, equally spectacular flowering trees, are somewhat in the shadows.  The aim of my talk-discussion is to tell you more about Magnolias – their evolution, diversity, and flowers – and hear what you have to say about them.  My presentation features many colorful, original photos of Magnolia specimens in the Washington, D.C., Area Ecosystem (WDCAE, DC and four surrounding counties), especially Georgetown University and the U.S. National Arboretum.  About four of the approximately 224 world Magnolia species are native to the WDCAE.  About 10 non-native species and 100 of their hybrids and cultivars are the Ecosystem’s gardens, parks, and yards.  Bring your Magnolia comments and questions and ride the Magnolia Magic Carpet with me.

 

This event is presented by Little Falls Village.
