Magnolias symbolize dignity and nobility. In ancient China, magnolias were thought to be the perfect symbols of womanly beauty and gentleness. In the American South, white magnolias are commonly seen in bridal bouquets because the flowers are thought to reflect and emphasize the bride's purity and nobility.
But like a bouquet of cut-flowers, magnolia blooms fade almost as quickly as they open. In a spring season of cool damp weather, magnolias will bloom for three weeks or more, but as soon as hot dry weather arrives, flowers drop in a matter of days.
