Very slow starting in Raleigh, NC (zone 7). Have had it for two years and is only 30" tall. Now losing upper leaves from the drought we are experiencing (July-Sept, 2007). One reference says it has been unsuccessful in the south. Location is part shade. Flowers are fragrant but short-lived.

large densely leaved tree from the high moutains in China (Yunnan). Leaves are a glaucous green and have a soft feel but leathery thickness (not glossy like many other Magnolias). Large, pale yellow-white to white oderless flowers.
