Magnolia sieboldii

Common Name – Oyama Magnolia

Native to Eastern Asia – Japan, Korea.  A small tree.  With white cup shaped flowers with purple red stamens.  Almost look like mini lotuses.  The flowers are fragrant, but I did not notice it in the rain!

  3. I have a collection of magnolias, and M. sieboldii (and the very similar M. wilsonii–takes more shade) are my favorites. I have featured it in several GBBD posts. I haven’t seen it in pink. M. stellata, which is a little similar, comes in pink.
