Press Exert from S.F. Botanical Garden

SAN FRANCISCO – During the grayest days of winter, nature stages a one-of-a-kind disruption every year at San Francisco Botanical Garden as more than 100 magnolias, many rare and historic, defy the gloom and erupt into a riot of pink and white blossoms. Velvety silver buds on the often bare branches of these elegant trees open into saucersized, vibrant flowers, filling the wintery Garden with dramatic splashes of color and sweetly fragrant scents. The breathtaking annual floral spectacle, with trees reaching 80 feet, is at its peak from mid-January through March.
