Magnolia cylindrica, or the Huangshan magnolia (named for Mount Huang, where it can be found naturally), is a species of plant in the Magnoliaceae family. It is endemic to China.

It is threatened by habitat loss.

Habit: Deciduous
Growth Rate: Moderate
Site Requirements: Sun; moist, well drained soil
Texture: Medium
Form: Rounded
Height: 20 to 30' Width: 8 to 15'
Leaf: 4 to 6" alternate, simple, dark glossy green leaves; pubescent underneath

Flower/Fruit: Cylindrical 3" white flowers in late spring to early summer; pinkish filaments; 2 to 3" fruit with red seeds. Smooth gray bark. It is a deciduous shrub or small tree with thin lanceolate dark green leaves. The Magnolia cylindrica grows erect, developing a short stem with a small crown, usually roundish.

Pure white cup shaped fragrant flowers are borne before the young leaves in early spring followed by cylindrical shaped fruits. The flowering period is normally March - April although some species do flower as late as September.
