And then there is whether you accept Michelia or Magnolia. Young plants from a collection at 2200 meters and the species ID was a best-guess from the field. Evergreen leaves on what were young second-growth trees as all mature specimens had been logged in this area. Should have white flowers. Just a few and would not expect a lot of hardiness.
Extraordinary yellow-flowered evergreen species from northern Vietnam on this collection. The trees in the wild were all small second-growth trees with mature examples nowhere in evidence. That night we slept in a nearby farmer's house with our sleeping bags on wide flooring planks of magnolia wood - mystery solved where the big trees went. Best in a sheltered spot from freezing winds.
Close ally to Magnolia sieboldii and M. wilsonii with gorgeous pendant white flowers and larger leaves with yellowish hairs underneath. Both leaves and flowers are larger than the aforementioned two species. Large shrub to a small tree, quite uncommon in cultivation and hardy in our area. These are seed-grown young plants from a tree of the original collection
This is a hardy evergreen Magnolia (formerly Michelia) that Hinkley collected in northern Vietnam in 2006. This has made a fine small tree quickly at Windcliff where it has weathered some bad winters. This is grown from cuttings from that plant and you can expect nice white flowers in just a few years.
Small plants from a wild collection of this iconic tree found in small, scattered populations from Ohio to Florida. The biggest simple leaves of any tree native to North America, these can be nearly 3' long in ideal conditions. The scented flowers are white touched in maroon in the interior base and do not suffer from leaf envy as they are 8"-10"+ across.
Seed-grown from a wild collection in Winston County Alabama of this unrivaled North American tree.. This has the largest simple leaves of any native plant - up to 30" long - and let's add the flowers as well which are 8"-10' wide and rarely to 12". These fragrant soup bowls are white with rose-purplish bases and followed by showy big cone-like fruits from which red seeds hang by threads. Seriously. Rich moist soil sheltered from wind.
