Register a Magnolia Cultivar
The Magnolia Society International serves as the International Cultivar Registration Authority for the Magnolia plant group and strives to be the leading source for information on all magnolia cultivars. Please note that the society is also the registration authority for the genus Liriodendron, another genus within the Magnoliaceae, the magnolia family.

Once a cultivar is accepted for registration, a description is written based on the information provided on the registration form, and that description will appear, along with others registered in that year, in an article in the Magnolia: The Journal of the Magnolia Society International. The registrar will put the description in a readable format based on the information provided on the form.

The Journal is published twice a year, and the registration article usually appears once each year. The process sometimes takes longer based on the current volume of cultivars under review, and the other content (articles) scheduled for journal publication. We will need high-resolution photos (300 dpi or greater) to publish with the description.

For more information, please contact Matthew Lobdell, our International Registrar of Magnolia Cultivars.
