Magnolia grandiflora: fragrant blossoms of perhaps the world's favourite flowering tree
Magnolia grandiflora, commonly known as the southern magnolia or bull bay, is a tree of the family Magnoliaceae native to the southeastern United States, from coastal North Carolina to central Florida, and west to East Texas and Oklahoma. Reaching 27.5 m (90 ft) in height, it is a large, striking evergreen tree, with large dark green leaves up to 20 cm (7.9 in) long and 12 cm (4.7 in) wide, and large, white, fragrant flowers up to 30 cm (12 in) in diameter.
Southern magnolias are native to the Southeastern United States, from coastal North Carolina south to central Florida, and then west to East Texas and Oklahoma. It is found on the edges of bodies of water and swamps, in association with sweetgum (Liquidambar styraciflua), water oak (Quercus nigra), and black tupelo (Nyssa sylvatica). In more sheltered habitats, it grows as a large tree, but can be a low shrub when found on coastal dunes.It is killed by summer fires, and is missing from habitats that undergo regular burning.
Magnolia grandiflora can produce seed by 10 years of age, although peak seed production is achieved closer to 25 years of age. Around 50% of seeds can germinate, and they are spread by birds and mammals. Squirrels, opossums, quail, and turkey are known to eat the seeds.The plant collector Mark Catesby, the first in North America, brought M. grandiflora to Britain in 1726, where it entered cultivation and overshadowed M. virginiana, which had been collected a few years earlier. It had also come to France, the French having collected it in the vicinity of the Mississippi River in Louisiana. It was glowingly described by Philip Miller in his 1731 work The Gardeners' Dictionary.
It is often planted in university campuses and allowed to grow into a large tree, either with dependent branches, or with the lower branches removed to display the bare trunks. It is also espaliered against walls, which improves its frost-hardiness.

Twickenham Plantation: Historic ACE Basin Rice Plantation on the Combahee River. Circa 1733
2510.7 +/- Acre Historic ACE Basin Rice Plantation With Over One Mile Of Combahee River Frontage with Private Dock, World-Class Wild Waterfowl Hunting, Manicured Quail Woods, And Restored Federal Style Manor. Circa 1733.
Twickenham Plantation is located in the ACE Basin of South Carolina in Beaufort County and features over 2510.7 +/- manicured acres. There is an abundance of upland quail woods, controlled interior & river rice impoundments for waterfowl hunting, and over one mile of river frontage on the South side of the Combahee River with private dock access. Twickenham is in a league of its own… There is simply no other property in the ACE Basin with this level of quality, ecological and wildlife diversity, and restored improvements without any restrictive conservation easements.
Twickenham was originally founded in 1732 under a Grant from England’s King George II and was assembled by Walter Izzard in 1733. It was originally a part of Tomotley Barony, which spanned over 48,000 acres. The main Plantation house was built in 1878 by Major John Screven and is a two-story home with 4 bedrooms and 3.5 baths. It was extensively remodeled over a 3-year period, and completed in 2018. While keeping the elegance of the 18th century, the house now boasts a myriad of modern features and improvements including a chef’s kitchen with high-end appliances, expansive living rooms, plush bedrooms and bathrooms, and period appropriate furniture and furnishings throughout. A formal dining room overlooks gardens designed by Robert Marvin and Douglas Duany, landscape architects who are credited with other works like the Augusta National Golf Club, Sea Pines Resort, and the Governors Mansion grounds.
In addition to the main house and gardens are two historic guesthouses that have also been completely restored and modernized, a manager’s house, horse barn, stables, and several additional storage barns. Away from the campus is a large pole barn, tractor shed, and grain bins. There is zero deferred maintenance and no expense has been spared in this restoration and rejuvenation of Twickenham Plantation.
Over 300 acres of the property are in controlled impoundments dating back to the early 1700s. Twickenham lies in the heart of the ACE Basin and the duck hunting here simply is as good as it gets. Migrating species of all kinds call Twickenham home including teal, wood ducks, pintails, mallards, ringnecks, and many others. The current owner has re-engineered life back into the rice impoundments with major capital improvements in the functional hydraulics, reclaiming rice field ditches, widened and improved the dike system, and new trunks and risers placed with care to control water flow; all allowing the new owners to cultivate previously abandoned rice fields and expanding the footprint of hunting opportunities. The unique combination of river rice fields and private, protected interior rice fields is simply unmatched along the Combahee River.
Twickenham has been managed primarily with quail in mind and quail courses are established, planted and managed intensively throughout the property. Much of the property is in old growth upland quail woods, and is a stunning example of decades of stewardship. Whitetails and turkeys have responded to proper quail management practices and are abundant on the property. Whitetails and turkeys remain largely an untapped hunting resource here. Trophy bucks and flocks of wild turkeys are regularly seen on evening outings.
Other notable features are a 10 + acre dove field, a 1 + acre fish pond, a covered river dock that provides private boat access to the Combahee River, and a well-managed 3300 foot grass airstrip for quick access to and from Twickenham. The airstrip can easily be expanded to 5000 feet if more runway is desired.
Plantations across the river from Twickenham include Cherokee, Bluff, Plum Hill, Combahee, Myrtle Grove and others. On the Twickenham side of the river are Auldbrass, Old Combahee, Hobonny, Bonny Hall, Parkers Ferry, and others. To the south and east of Twickenham are Castle Hill, Cotton Hall, Tomotley, Bindon and more.
There are no conservation easements on Twickenham, and it has an abundance of unique and highly valuable attributes.

A majestic Neem Tree
Azadirachta indica is a tree in the mahogany family Meliaceae. It is one of two species in the genus Azadirachta, and is native to India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh growing in tropical and semi-tropical regions. Neem tree is the official tree of the Sindh Province and is very common in all cities of Sindh, there are projects underway for planting this tree in all over Sindh Province. Neem trees also grow in islands in the southern part of Iran where it is called Cherish or Azad derakht in Persian. Its fruits and seeds are the source of neem oil.
Neem is a fast-growing tree that can reach a height of 15--20 metres (49--66 ft), rarely to 35--40 metres (115--130 ft). It is evergreen, but in severe drought it may shed most or nearly all of its leaves. The branches are wide spread. The fairly dense crown is roundish or ovular and may reach the diameter of 15--20 metres (49--66 ft) in old, free-standing specimens.
The English name neem is borrowed from Hindi; in English it is also known as Indian Lilac. The Urdu name is the same as that used in Nepali, Hindi, and Bengali. Other vernacular names include Nimm (Punjabi), Vembu (Tamil), Arya Veppu (Malayalam), Azad Dirakht (Persian), Nimba, Arishta, Picumarda (Sanskrit, Oriya), Limdo (Gujarati language) Kadu-Limba (Marathi), Dogoyaro (in some Nigerian languages), Margosa, Neem (نيم) (Arabic), Nimtree, Vepu, Vempu (வேம்பு), Vepa (Telugu), Bevu (Kannada), Kodu nimb (Konkani), (Kohomba, Sinhala), Tamar (Burmese), sầu đâu, xoan Ấn Độ (Vietnamese), (Sdao, Khmer), สะเดา (Sadao, Thai), אזדרכת (Hebrew), Maliyirinin (Bambara language) and Paraiso (Spanish). In East Africa it is also known as Muarubaini (Swahili).The neem tree is noted for its drought resistance. Normally it thrives in areas with sub-arid to sub-humid conditions, with an annual rainfall 400--1,200 millimetres (16--47 in). It can grow in regions with an annual rainfall below 400 mm, but in such cases it depends largely on ground water levels. Neem can grow in many different types of soil, but it thrives best on well drained deep and sandy soils. It is a typical tropical to subtropical tree and exists at annual mean temperatures between 21--32 °C (70--90 °F). It can tolerate high to very high temperatures and does not tolerate temperature below 4 °C (39 °F). Neem is a life-giving tree, especially for the dry coastal, southern districts of India and Pakistan. It is one of the very few shade-giving trees that thrive in the drought-prone areas. The trees are not at all delicate about the water quality and thrive on the merest trickle of water, whatever the quality. In India and tropical countries where the Indian diaspora has reached, it is very common to see neem trees used for shade lining the streets, around temples, schools & other such public buildings or in most people's back yards. In many countries such as Ecuador, Haiti and Venezuela the shade is the principal benefit so far commonly attributed to the neem. In very dry areas the trees are planted in large tracts of land.In India, the plant is variously known as Sacred Tree, Heal All, Nature's Drugstore, Village Pharmacy and Panacea for all diseases. Products made from neem trees have been used in India for over two millennia for their medicinal properties: neem products are believed to be anthelmintic, antifungal, antidiabetic, antibacterial, antiviral, contraceptive and sedative. It is considered a major component in Ayurvedic and Unani medicine and is particularly prescribed for skin disease. Neem oil is also used for healthy hair, to improve liver function, detoxify the blood, and balance blood sugar levels, and is considered to have no side effects. However, insufficient research has been done to assess the purported benefits of neem. In adults, short-term use of neem is safe, while long-term use may harm the kidneys or liver; in small children, neem oil is toxic and can lead to death. Neem may also cause miscarriages.
