Oyama Magnolia
Magnolia sieboldi
”Oh My” Magnolia, Upside-down Magnolia, Australian Magnolia

Description: Magnolia sieboldi, the Oyama Magnolia, is a tree that goes through remarkable seasonal changes. From May & throughout summer it produces huge white upside-down cup-shaped blooms with red stamens inside. These flowers smell quite wonderful, though really it has a pleasing smell even when not in bloom, as the shiny hand-sized leaves have a comforting, vaguely menthol-ish odor.
