    Magnolia, probably a hybrid. Ill help you narrow it down a bit, because it looks like it has atleast some parentege with subgenus Magnolia (Anthers open by splitting at the front facing the centre of the flower. Deciduous or evergreen. Flowers produced after the leaves )

    The plants your familiar with are probably subgenus Yulania (Anthers open by splitting at the sides. Deciduous. Flowers mostly produced before leaves (except M. acuminata))

    This section is native to china, the americas, and asia.
    that makes no logic

    Awesome! I have a positive ID from the Magnolia folks!!! Thanks to everyone for the input. I never, ever would have thought it was a magnolia. Anyway, I highly recommend getting this tree if you have the chance or inclination. The smell is great.


    Michelle,

    Your tree is most definitely Magnolia figo (formerly called Michelia figo).
    M. figo is native to a wide area of South China including Guangdong,
    Guangxi, and Jiangxi. I grows well throughout the southeastern US and the
    west coast of California, Oregon, and Washington.

    You probably noticed the sweet "candy-banana"- like fragrance of the blooms.

    Thank you for your question.

    Warm Regards,
    **** Figlar
    A flytrap ate my homework!
