Superb beauty, delicacy, sensuality and confidentiality. In the language of flowers, it is the symbolic meaning of that plant that, from the Far East and America, conquered Europe in 1600, the Magnolia. In ancient China, it was believed that magnolia was capable of curing even sadness: the scent of its flowers , in fact, is refined yet magnetic, almost mesmerizing. Thanks to its evocative beauty, the magnolia has taken on numerous meanings in different cultures over time. It is generally associated with the beauty of the female figure, but also with its perseverance and inner strength . Its flower can symbolize purity if it is white or modesty if it is pink.
Magnolia has been present on earth for millions of years, a fact also testified by some fossil finds. It is notoriously a long-lived plant with a very slow but constant growth. The oldest magnolia in Europe is found in the Botanical Garden of Padua and was planted in 1786.
