Here’s a photo we took in the gardens last year of a new Mangolia insignis hybrid from SC plantsman Kevin Paris, who will be one of many world renown speakers at the upcoming meeting of the International Magnolia Society meeting to be held here in Raleigh, March 23-25. We look forward the amazing lineup of speakers and tours, including here at PDN/JLBG. This is an intense group of plant nerds from around the world, most of whom are passionate about much more than magnolias. Below is a note from President Gary Knox about the upcoming registration deadline, and how to sign up. We hope to see you there.

We are also proud to offer a pre-meeting, hands-on educational program on propagating magnolias by three prominent magnolia breeders: Ethan Guthrie, Rich Hesselein and Kevin Parris. Learn how to hybridize magnolias in one session and learn secrets to successful propagation by cuttings and grafting in two other sessions.
