Michelia doltsopa

Family: Magnoliaceae

This popular evergreen tree is valued for the showy display of Magnolia-like flowers during late winter when very few trees are flowering. It can be used as a hedge or screen as well as a specimen and is a stunning sight when in full bloom.

Flowers are large creamy white , reminiscent of Magnolia, are borne in the leaf axils from mid-winter to early spring. Upon opening, they have a delicate perfume.

Got the bug!
Am I obsessive?
Camera shutter worn out!
Computer suffering overload!
Did I take another 500 photos today?
Back up falling behind? :(
Can’t decide what to upload?
Yes that’s me!
