Description: Yulan magnolia is one of our most ornamental deciduous trees Depending on how it is pruned this extremely ornamental magnolia can be grown as a tree or large shrub. The Yulan magnolia is most attractive when trimmed up as a tree that can grow up to 40 ft (12.2 m) in height and forms a broad rounded crown. One of the deciduous magnolias, it covers itself with huge creamy white flowers just before the leaves emerge in spring. These spectacular blossoms are fragrant and are held upright on the stem. They are 5-6 in (12.7-15.2 cm) across with some cultivars having flowers up to 8 in (20.3 cm) in diameter. Each is composed of 9 petals arranged around a pinkish center. Flowers are followed by a large 5 in (12.7 cm) long brown "cone" in the fall.

Discussion: With age the rather smooth gray trunk assumes a twisted gnarly appearance that provides winter interest. If left untrimmed Yulan magnolia forms a very large dense multi-trunked shrub. In fact trees grown in Florida and other hot summer areas tend to be "shrubbier" than those grown in cooler climates. Even when not in bloom Yulan magnolia is attractive due to its pleasing form and large, 7 in (17.8 cm) long leathery leaves. In some references, you may see Yulan magnolia identified as M. denudata or M. conspicua, names which are now considered synonyms.
