This particular plant was featured on Botany Photo of the Day nearly six months ago: Magnolia sieboldii. In that entry, I mention that the flowers of Oyama magnolia are pendulous. I hope it’s clear that the branch suspending this flower has been manipulated to display the flower in an unnatural position.
