Magnolia Cylindrica, or the Huang-shan magnolia (named for Mount Huang, where it can be found naturally) is endemic to China. It is threatened by habitat loss.

It is a deciduous shrub or small tree with thin lanceolate dark green leaves. The Magnolia cylindrica grows erect, developing a short stem with a small crown, usually roundish. Pure white cup shaped fragrant flowers are borne before the young leaves in early spring followed by cylindrical shaped fruits. The flowering period is normally March - April although some species do flower as late as September. Hardy zone 7.
