Magnolia Seed Burr

Magnolia grandiflora

(Also known asĀ Bull Bay, Sweet Magnolia)

This is not a bloom. It is the a Southern Magnolia seed burr with the red seeds starting to mature. The Magnolia blooms in the spring and sets its “fruit.” This is the resulting fruit. When the fruit matures, it becomes a burr with seeds popping out.

Our magnolia bloomed back in April but bloomed again recently. Here is a photo of that bloom in case you missed it.
