Umbrella Magnolia

Image by Allison Finn.

I will be adding information later, but his image of a flower I have never seen, comes to us from the Upper Buffalo Wilderness Area near Ponca AR, courtesy of Allison Finn. The interior "cone" of the Umbrella Magnolia appears to have common characteristics with the very present Southern Magnolia, but a much thinner and more symmetrical petal outcrop.
