One of many types of magnolia

A magnolia is a type of an evergreen plant with a very fragrant flower. There are about 80 different species of magnolia that are native to the eastern United States and southeastern Asia. [1] The magnolia is pollinated by beetles. [2]

Mississippi is known as the "Magnolia State" and the magnolia (magnolia grandiflora) is Mississippi's state flower (and also state tree). [3] The magnolia was officially designated as the State Flower by the 1952 Legislature. [4] Mississippi's State Quarter was issued in 2002 and features a drawing of the magnolia on the obverse. [5]

The magnolia is also the state flower of Louisiana. It was designated the Louisiana state flower in 1900. [6]
