Close Up of Huge Magnolia Flowers Tree in Roerich Art Gallery Himanchal Pradesh


Magnolia Tree at Roerich Art Gallery
Magnolia flowers are very beautiful and we were lucky enough to see the majestic tree of magnolia in the premises of Roerich Art Gallery , Himachal Pradesh, Manali. The tree must be very very  old with its huge growth and majestic flowers size.

The flower on drying may have turned yellowish orange before leaving the tree.
Majestic Huge White Magnolia Flower
The blooms were very big and white in colour. almost 7 to 10 inches in size.
The Fruit on Magnolia Tree
There were seed pods or fruits visible on the tree which on drying would fall off from the tree. On enquiring with a botanist I came to know that magnolia trees need very cold climates. Himachal pradesh is a beautiful place with pleasant chilly climate all year round. With my fascination with this serene , majestic flower, I came to know that this tree may not grow well in containers and needed land. And also the supported cliamte was chilly, snowy atmosphere like that of himanchal pradesh. Foreign countries do have this trees in abundance with the cold climates there. So at present this will remain a dream to grow magnolias in containers, still I would keep on enquiring about this beautiful tree that looks almost like our rubber tree with shiny dark reddish brown maroon leaves.

Fascinating magnolia flowers, could not get the fragrance of these beautiful flowers as the tree was huge, would love to add one if possible in our family!lovely magnolia flowers , really worth the blooms!

  1. I had a chance to combine my two loves in life recently and had a two weeks' holiday in wonderful France, to which I had been before, and had loved so much. I took a little Renault rental car and headed off from Paris, to the Palace of Versailles, to Chartres then southward to sunny Provence, via the Auvergne region, with the Songs of the Auvergne playing repeated on the CD player.
    Magnifique, comme toujours. I saw many art galleries and followed the footsteps of artists, like poor Vincent Van Gogh.
    Back home all too soon, I ordered a canvas print from wahooart.com, choosing this painting by Cézanne, http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8EWNWL, to remember my trip by.
