Magnolia Yulan is a stunning flowering tree that belongs to the Magnoliaceae family. It is native to China, particularly the Yunnan Province, and is widely cultivated for its ornamental value. The tree is known for its large, fragrant, and showy white flowers that bloom in late spring to early summer.

The Magnolia Yulan tree typically grows to a height of 30-40 feet, with a spread of 20-30 feet. It has an upright, pyramidal shape when young, and as it matures, it forms a broad, spreading crown. The tree has a smooth, grayish-brown bark, and its leaves are large, ovate, and glossy green, measuring up to 8 inches long.

One of the most striking features of the Magnolia Yulan tree is its flowers. The flowers are cup-shaped and can measure up to 8 inches in diameter. They are pure white, with a slight pinkish tint at the base, and emit a sweet, lemony fragrance. The flowers bloom in late spring to early summer, and their beauty attracts bees, butterflies, and other pollinators.

The Magnolia Yulan tree prefers full sun to partial shade and well-drained soil that is slightly acidic. It is a relatively low-maintenance tree and requires only occasional pruning to maintain its shape. It is also tolerant of drought and heat, making it an excellent choice for gardens in warmer regions.

In summary, the Magnolia Yulan tree is a beautiful and elegant tree that is prized for its large, fragrant, and showy white flowers. It is a low-maintenance tree that can thrive in a range of growing conditions, making it a popular choice for gardens and landscapes.
