    The stamens can be pale, less effective visually. Stock sold locally often has washed-out looking ones. A specimen with good, dark stamens was given to Washington Park Arboretum, Seattle once by B.O. Mulligan because their existing plant was one of the poor forms. I have heard this paleness attributed to virus infestation. However, Callaway, THE WORLD OF MAGNOLIAS (Timber Press) says
    “In a recent study Ueda (1980) divided Magnolia sieboldii into two subspecies. Plants native to Korea and Manchuria were included in subsp. sieboldii, while those native to Japan and southern China were designated as subsp. japonica. The latter plants differ from typical M. sieboldii in having stamens of a lighter color (light rose to pink or even yellow) and a more procumbent or ‘creeping’ habit. These pink- and yellow-stamend forms have been reported elsewhere, yet it is not clear that the distinction between these two subspecies is warranted.”

    I tried to grow this magnolia in South Mississippi. It hung on for about two years and then just died. I’m wondering what climate is best for it? It’s a beautiful magnolia and I would love a variety of magnolias, but mostly the grandiflora, soulangeanas and a few Pyramid magnolias grow around here. I ordered the sieboldii from a mail order catalog. Proves that they will sell anywhere.

    Magnolias are my favourite flowers. I loved this white grandiflora because there was a giant tree in Coimbra – Portugal, near my University, and it reminds me of my youth. How long does it take to grow into a tree in a climate such as Portugal? Because I have a a velvet whine/pink one for over 10 years and, it is beautifull, but it not a tree, it has aroud 2meters and many, many flowers. Does the white one groes faster? Thank you. Keep making of this amore beatiful world!

    hello, I am English living on Rhodes island Greece.
    I bought what I was told was a Camelia, because it reminded me of the giant magnolia tree at the gate of Kew Gardens London.
    I was often taken there as a child and then took my children, who named it “the flower tree”.
    But now I think it may be a magnolia, what is the difference?
