I found this Michelia at Green Thumb Nursery in Ventura, CA, and it seems to be somewhat rare. It seems to like the same conditions as the other Michelias. This one has not flowered for me yet, but I will post pictures when it does. The Magnolia Society has the only pictures of flowers that I have found.
