Its a big tree. New leaves are attractive and the large flowers are fragrant. But it is really an endangered species that is now hardly found in the foot of Himalaya where it blooms. It is a punishable offence in Nepal to buy and sell it. The Govt there treats it an highly endangered plant. [ mm3mngg.]

This is a fascinating Himalayan relative of the Magnolias that has incredibly ornamental leaf color, and fruit like a fig tree. It is a large tree and is evergreen ,but I don't know its hardiness (can find little info on line or in books on this one). THere are two large specimens in Pasadena's Huntington Gardens in California, though, so obviously takes some frost.
