Magnolia Vallartensis Named Official Flower of Puerto Vallarta

For several years, research has been conducted by Dr. José Antonio Vázquez García, together with Maestro Ricardo Díaz Borioli and Rosa Murguía Araiza, where they have been investigating various botanical novelties in the region of the South Coast of the State of Jalisco.

In March, the University of Guadalajara published "Recursos Forestales en el Occidente de México" ("Forest Resources in the West of Mexico") in which the researchers were able to classify a new species of Magnolia.

Ricardo Díaz stressed that this new species is only located in the municipality of Puerto Vallarta (in the area of Arroyo Palo María) and Cabo Corrientes (along the road of Provincia a Zimapán).

He added that this publication is of great importance since it establishes the official protocol for the allocation of the name of the new species which is a beautiful flower with a high degree of aroma, the "Magnolia Vallartensis", or "Vallarta Magnolia."

The Puerto Vallarta City Council unveiled the Agreement Number 0899/2012 establishing that the Vallarta Magnolia would be the official flower of Puerto Vallarta.

In the coming weeks, it was announced that this new official flower will be planted in various areas of our city, including on the Rio Cuale Island, therefore showcasing our Vallarta Magnolia for locals and visitors.

The new species of Magnolia is a sample of the botanical wealth that can be seen in this region and in the future will be uniquely identified as the flower of Vallarta, as the Agave and Coconut Palm are identified with the State of Jalisco.

This species could be grown throughout the municipality and given that it will take the name of the city as the scientific identity of its nature, will be the most appropriate symbol to promote the city in different fields, and could be included in the city seal or part of new promotional items that arise from this important discovery.
