Description Germination
 

Also known as Houpu magnolia,an exotic Chinese subspecies of M. officinalis. What makes it special is the apical notch at the tips of its large obovate leaves giving the leaves a bi-lobed shape characteristic. In May-June, antique ivory coloured 30 cm diameter sweetly scented flowers appear in abundance. Grows very quickly (1m/year) and blooms at a very young age (5-7 years). Straight trunked tree reaching an average height of 15 meters, but the odd larger specimen is known in botanical gardens. Almost non-existent in the wild due to over harvesting of its prized medicinal bark used in TCM.
