Michelia 'Silver Cloud' will treat you to richly fragrant flowers that will entice you to your front door. This evergreen shrub or small tree begins the process with copper colored flower buds that have an interesting and beautifully fuzzy texture. The buds then open to cup shaped white flowers in spring and persist well into the summer months. The glossy leaves back the blossoms for high contrast and stand out beauty. Plant your michelia in full to partial sun. Growth is fast, with eventual height to 30 to 40 feet, so consider this evergreen plant with its captivating fragrance as a supreme alternative to magnolia. Use as an accent tree for courtyards, containers, large porches, or patios, transplanting to a larger planter as the tree grows. Clip to shape. Hardy to USDA zone 10 and all higher zones. Shipped potted in soil to ensure the best possible start when planted in yard or garden. Consider for gifts.
