    I am also researching a Magnolia and was reading another post relating to spelling of the name. That post suggested a correct spelling of Magnolia x soulangeana. Was that post relating to another Magnolia? Just curious and trying to collect the information.

    On the page discussing the family the same treatment also has two paragraphs detailing problems with Magnolia remaining broken into a bunch of different genera, with the first paragraph citing multiple genetic studies pointing toward it being considered a single genus.
