Young plants grown from seed we received from one of England's preeminent collectors of woody plants who is calling it aff. macranthum based on a quick run-through in Flora of China.  This seed is from the best form selected and grown from a collection near Dali in Yunnan.  We have not seen the parent plant but are told that it has larger flowers and better leaves than the various Illicium simonsii that are grown in the same garden.  White flowers with a great scent was the last bit of information that came with the seed.  These are young plants but will grow pretty quickly and we would guess that they will thrive in zone 9 and hopefully get down into zone 8b.
