From Yunnan Province, China, Magnolia laevifolia has thick olive-green spatulate leaves that hold exquisite and conspicuous rusty-golden buds. Its 2–3" white, chalice-shaped flowers have butter-yellow stamens and are prettily scented with a slight and sweet spicy-cucumber fragrance. Blooming in early spring it can continue until fall. In bloom or bud, this is a truly beautiful plant! One of my favorites if I must admit it. 18 ft T x 6 ft W in time. Syn. Michelia yunnanensis.

Minimum temperature: 5° F
