The premier publication of the Southern Garden History Society is its quarterly journal, Magnolia, which provides readers with scholarly articles on historic gardens and gardeners, plants and restorations. Additionally, outstanding book reviews and a calendar of events keep members abreast of current information and activities.

Magnolia has helped society members enhance their understanding of the South’s richly complex garden history via essays, conference summaries, book reviews, and a fine array of illustrations. In addition, Magnolia has kept members up to date on society activities, as well as on other historic garden and landscape programs relating to the Southern United States.
