Beautiful deciduous tree, native to Japan. Profusion of fragrant cup-shaped white flowers before the leaves appear in the spring.
The leaves, 8-15cm long have an obovate shape with a pointed tip, a smooth underside and even margins. Foliage takes take on a yellow colour in the autumn before falling.
Grow in full sun and fertile, moist but well drained soil. Magnolioa kobus is fully hardy. The potential height is quite substantial, but 5-6m most probably in Norfolk, the location of our nursery..
