Description

Michelia yunnanensis, recently reclassified as Magnolia laevifolia, is a delightfully scented plant with beautiful white/cream white coloured flowers with yellow stamens in their centre. The flowers cover a large portion of the plant. The leaves of this plant are dark green, though new leaves start off as a lighter shade of green.

It is best to give Michelia yunnanensis a layer of mulch covering the roots, just like in its natural habitat (the forests of Yunnan). In addition, having a slightly acidic soil (that is kept moist in summer) is also preferred. If Michelia gets yellow leaves, it is recommended to add additional iron.

Michelia yunnanensis is quite winter-hardy. It will survive temperatures as low as -13C. Sometimes, the leaves will take some damage, but it will recover from the cold. Make sure to protect it from cold winds, as these can cause the plant to dehydrate in winter.

Fun fact: the flowers on this plant are used to make perfumes.
