Magnolia Denudata Also known as: Yulan, Jade Lily, formerly known as Magnolia heptapeta.
This fragrant ornamental is native to eastern and southern China and has been a beloved garden favorite for at least 1,000 years in Buddhist temples! It is the official city flower of Shanghai.
This tree can grow to 35' (75' in the wild) with an extensive root system, and it needs space to spread and should not be planted close to foundations. With a low rounded spreading crown, It is also sometimes grown as a large shrub.
Obovate leaves (to 6” long) are dark green above and light green below. Fragrant goblet-shaped white flowers (to 4-6” across), typically with 9 thick white petals, bloom in spring. It is deciduous so flowers bloom before the leaves emerge. The tepals (petals and sepals that aren't differentiated) are also known as a delicacy, dipped in flour and lightly fried. Flowers then give way to cone-like pods that mature to red in late summer, releasing individual red coated fruits suspended on slender threads at maturity. Black seeds are contained within these red fruits.
Best grown in moist, organically rich, well-drained loams in full sun to part shade. Generally intolerant of soil extremes (dry or wet). Intolerant of most urban pollutants. Flowers may be injured by late spring frosts so protect it from winter type winds. USDA Zone 6-9.
