Thermal time requirements for flowering of precocious Asiatic magnolias
Observations on flowering times of 55 different Magnolia species, hybrids and cultivars were made at Lincoln University over a period of five years. Results from June 1st until 50% full flowering showed thermal time was a better predictor of flowering time than number of days.
