Tulip Magnolia Blossom in Front of Azalea

Tulip Magnolia, Another Variety

Or perhaps “Saucer Magnolia” depending on where you look. Google quickly overwhelmed me with information in my search for how many varieties there might be. I’ll just say this particular tree has huge blossoms, 8 to 10 inches (20-25 cm) across, and they have a more delicate coloring than those in my post Tulip Magnolias in Bloom.

These blossoms didn’t seem to have the outer fuzzy covering as other tulip magnolias I have seen.

The blossoms emitted a sweet, but not overwhelming, fragrance. Some other varieties I have encountered could almost be said to stink.

Many Azaleas are also in bloom in this area and these made a nice backdrop to another unopened bloom.
