One of the most showy flowering magnolia varieties is Magnolia Denudata, often known as Lily Tree or Yulan Magnolia. This small deciduous tree gives many seasons of appeal, with fragrant white flowers in the spring and vivid pink fruits in the autumn. This cultivar is ideal for use as a specimen tree. The tree blooms in April with multitudes of cup-shaped white flowers before the foliage emerges, attractively contrasted by the black glossy bark. The upright blooms are delicate and big, and they unfold their petals gently, resembling lilies, thus the name Lily tree.
