Quick Overview:

This evergreen Magnolia (formerly known as Michelia) was selected for use as a screening plant in shade or sun. The plant has rapid growth and is very dense even in shade. The cross made by the late Bill Smith crossed Magnolia figo v skinneriana with Magnolia figo v crassipes. The small pink to ruby flowers are highly fragrant, smelling like bananas, and appear in late spring with occasional blooms through the summer. This plant will be patented.
