Montreal's Gorgeous Magnolia Trees Are Blossoming & This Map Can Help You Find Them

It's that magical time of year when Montreal's Magnolia trees are blooming — and, in case you didn't know, there's a map that can help you find them.

The city's Magnolia trees tend to bloom in May. However, Dr. David Wees, who teaches plant science at McGill University, told us that due to Montreal's recent streak of warm weather, he suspects "most flowers will bloom at least a week earlier than usual" this year.
