Michelia tree

Michellia come in a number of varieties and although some have been reclassified the old names are still widely used. Some species and cultivars are suited as tall feature or screening trees, others such as Michelia yunnanensis are better suited for use as hedging plants.

In recent years Michellia have been re classified as Magnolia, however they are still widely called by the old name. Growth rate varies greatly between varieties with M.doltsopa being fast while the Port Wine Magnolia M.figo is slow.

All species and cultivars are easy to prune.
