Chip and Joanna Gaines have been naming everything “magnolia” for so long that fans almost don’t notice it anymore. The former Fixer Upper hosts have become inextricably linked with magnolias, just like they are with shiplap, giant clocks, and chic modern farmhouses. But there is a sweet story behind their love of everything magnolia.

Next up, Chip and Joanna are planning on launching their own lifestyle network which is named — you guessed it — Magnolia Network. This ambitious project proves that the Gaineses have endless energy plus an enduring love for magnolias.

Why does Joanna Gaines name everything “magnolia?”

The origin of Chip and Joanna’s magnolia obsession goes back to long before they were famous. It’s a very romantic story that Chip shared during the series finale of Fixer Upper. He and the kids planted a magnolia tree together before Chip explained the origin of the incredibly special flower.

“You know what’s interesting about a magnolia tree?” Chip asks his kids after they planted one, Country Living reported. “One of mama and I’s first dates I climbed up a magnolia tree and I pulled her off a magnolia bloom and I gave it to her.”

Even Joanna Gaines’s first store was names Magnolia

Back before they became famous, Chip and Joanna were using
the magnolia name. Joanna’s first retail shop was also named Magnolia Market.
She closed it down after three years of operation in 2006 so she could focus on
raising her family and growing the family’s construction business.

It was a sad decision, but one that ultimately led to the
creation of Fixer Upper.

Now the Gaines family plants magnolia trees everywhere
