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.
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.
