Native to Southwest China, this magnolia species is extremely attractive in both flower, and form, with simple, deep green foliage. As a mature plant, it is cold hardy in USDA Zones 5-9. In optimal cultivation, Magnolia liliiflora can take the form of a large shrub, 5-10 feet tall, or a small tree, 10-20 feet tall. and blooms profusely in early spring with large pink to purple showy flowers, before the leaf buds open.

This plant requires full sun to thrive and needs regular to moderate water. It prefers moist, well-drained soil, but will tolerate dryer conditions once established. During its growing season, mulch can help keep the roots cool and avoid moisture loss due to evaporation.

In colder regions, it is recommended to grow Magnolia liliiflora in pot and brought indoors during colder months.
