ME, MY, c. IN, s. MO, and e. OK, south to c. GA, w. Panhandle FL (Holmes and Walton counties), s. AL, s. MS, and w. LA.image of plant

MagnoliaceaeMagnolia fraseriFraser Magnolia, Mountain Magnolia, Earleaf Umbrella-treeMesic to dry forests.A Southern and Central Appalachian endemic: sw. PA (found in the 2010s, S. Grund, pers. comm., 2019), KY, and w. VA south through w. NC and e. TN to nw. SC, n. GA, and ne. AL.image of plant
MagnoliaceaeMagnolia grandifloraSouthern Magnolia, Bull Bay, LaurelMaritime forests, mesic Coastal Plain bluffs and flats, bottomlands, now also widely naturalized, spreading from cultivation into wet to mesic (and even dry) forests.The pre-Columbian range was apparently from se. NC south to c. peninsular FL, west to e.

MagnoliaceaeMagnolia macrophyllaBigleaf MagnoliaMesic forests, primarily over limestone, other calcareous sedimentary rocks (calcareous shales, sandstones, etc.), or mafic rocks (east of the Blue Ridge), mesic hammocks in the Coastal Plain.S. OH and sw. VA south through e. TN to w. GA, west to AL, MS, n. LA, and se. AR (Sundell et al. 1999); disjunct on Crowleys Ridge in ne. AR (population now extirpated), c. and nc. SC, and e. SC (where probably not native). The range of this species is sometimes stated in such a way as to imply that it is a tree of the southern Blue Ridge, which it barely and marginally enters. Actually, it avoids the Southern Blue Ridge, reaching its greatest abundance in the sedimentary rock Appalachians west of the Blue Ridge, particularly the Cumberland Plateau, and occurs east of the Blue Ridge only as a rare disjunct.image of plant
