This lovely blossom greeted me a year and half ago at the NCSU Arboretum in Raleigh. Not much was in blossom but Magnolia Biondi, an early blooming (-10°F, USDA Zones 6-8) welcome sight. This is a sweet small pastel on paper (100% cotton), image size about 3 x 4 inches, with a simple white single mat measuring 8 X 10 outside dimensions, I gently wrote in pencil on the mat just below the opening, "the Hope of Spring Magnolia / Magnola Biondi". Unframed. Signed John H. Anglin 2008 in pencil. I'll miss it.
