This is the tree I alluded to in an earlier post. They are blooming all around town right now and I am 99.9% sure it is a variety of magnolia. But where are the big, shiny, leathery evergreen leaves? Does anyone know what this variety is? Or do the leaves come out later? Either way, I know that I absolutely love them. I ride my bike down the streets in our neighborhood and the air is filled with their musky sweet smell!
