A native to the forests of Japan, Magnolia kobus is an early flowering species, with masses of large goblet to saucer-shaped, creamy white, scented flowers in spring. These flowers appear on bare stems before the leaves emerge. After flowering, ornamental pink fruit are produced in summer which split to reveal orange seed. The leaves are bright green and oval in shape.
A hardy and very lovely small flowering tree, Magnolia kobus is a superb addition to a spring border or woodland garden. Best in full sun if sheltered from the wind or dappled shade.
