About the Author

Andrew Bunting is the assistant director of the Chicago Botanic Garden. Prior to that, he worked at the Scott Arboretum at Swarthmore College where he helped build a national collection of magnolias recognized by the North American Plant Collections Consortium. He is on the board of directors for the Magnolia Society International and served two terms as president. He has lectured extensively on magnolias, written articles for Arnoldia, Organic Gardening, The American Gardener, and the Magnolia Society Journal, and has appeared on The Martha Stewart Show.


"Bunting details what temperature zones in which they'll grow and flower and the type of soil, sunlight and care they need to thrive year after year. He also explains how to grow more magnolias from seeds and stem cuttings in case you get hooked." --Chicago Tribune

"The newest additions to Timber Press's The Plant Lover's Guide series--a wonderful set of gardening books for home gardeners and professionals alike--this volume spotlights the diverse genus Magnolia. In it, Andrew Bunting shares his extensive knowledge of and experience with these plants, acquired through a long career at various botanic gardens and involvement with the Magnolia Society International...Bunting's real fondness for magnolias and his extensive knowledge about the genus are evident on each page. His evocative writing style and attention to detail mesh into an educational and inspiring book that is in-depth yet readable. It is ideal for really getting to know this popular and diverse genus." --The American Gardener "The book is written by an expert, but rather than being a scholarly tome, it is a memoir combined with a compendium of members of this beloved genus. . . . the book includes cultural advice based on Bunting's personal experience as well as design suggestions and propagation techniques." --Country Gardens "Of interest and relevance to all growers and would-be growers of magnolias anywhere." --The Garden "Andrew Bunting has spent a lifetime studying and discussing magnolias and this book offers an eye-catching distillation of his knowledge. Most of the book is given over to a compendium of 146 species and cultivars along with chapters outlining the genus from garden design and botanical perspectives. There are helpful lists of magnolias to suit different purposes, so that it should be quite easy to find a plant to suit." --Gardens Illustrated best book of the year
