You don't have to wait for spring in San Francisco to get a spectacular color show of flowers, in fact if you do you just might miss the most impressive one of them all: the magnolias.

Blooming from mid-January to the end of March, the large pink and white flowers of the magnolia tree sprinkle the city with dazzling winter decoration.

The best place to see this natural marvel is at the San Francisco Botanical Gardens, located in the heart of Golden Gate Park and home to over 100 magnolia trees of a variety of species.

During the winter months the Botanical Gardens hosts a selection of magnolia related events as well, from magnolia in the moonlight walks under the full moon to a special magnolia scavenger hunt for the kids. Check the SF Botanical Gardens website for the full rundown.
