This gorgeous tree is growing successfully in southeastern Massachusetts. Took 5 years to establish and bloom but worth the wait. Blooms are few but have an amazing fragrance. Tree is currently 10 years old and about 10' tall. It is growing in mostly sun with late afternoon shade in a somewhat moist, sheltered location. A late frost damaged the emerging buds this year but the brown crinkled leaves are falling and bright green leaves have followed.

Once saw this plant in a glass house at St Andrew's Botanic Garden, Scotland. Stunningly beautiful flower. This year, the plant is on their seed list but I cannot provide a constantly moist soil.
