Caption

Fine early illustration of a Magnolia liliiflora flower with original hand colour. From Hoffman series "Das Buch Der Welt" 1847. The magnoliaceae is one of the most ancient of plant families, with a wide distribution reflecting their long history. Magnolia has one of the most primitive angiosperm flower types, retaining features seen in many of the earliest fossils. They bear many stamens and pistils arranged in spiralling rows on a fingerlike receptacle that resembles a cone in structure. The petals are fleshy and leaf like. Their structure is general and not specifically evolved to attract certain specific pollinators.
