Words used to describe this close cousin of the Magnolia are "best ever flowering tree", "lots of bang behind the bloom" "top performer, under-rated".  

Some members of the Michelia family such as Michelia figo (Port Wine Magnolia) are a little shy showing off their assets and therefore can be overlooked by the gardener. This would be a mistake. The flowers may be a little hidden by the foliage but when you go out into the garden in early evening the delightful fragrance will definitely lead you by the nose.  

Michelias offer glossy evergreen foliage that doesn';t mind being cliped into whatever shape you like, quantity of blooms to rival many garden plants, intense fragrance and a neat and tidy habit. Michelias can be used for topiary and hedging and they grow very hapily in a container.

CLICK TO ENLARGE

Bred by in NZ by Mark Jury. A beautiful, easy to grow Michelia with dainty spring flowers which are delightfully fragrant and coloured an unusual lilac pink. The dark green foliage always looks good and is disease resistant. Happy in the sun or part shade. Evergreen.

I put 6 of these in my front garden a year ago and they have done remarkably well and seem quite robust. I intend to trim them up to make a standard shape but they do equally well left as a bush or used as a hedge.
