Magnolia sacilifolia is a deciduous tree with gray to gray-brown barks found in forests in mountainous regions. Leaves are in an alternate arrangement, blades measuring 6-12cm in length, 2-5cm in width, in the shape of a lanceolate or oval-like lanceolate, with entire margins and pointed tips, and with cuneate bases, also with a thin texture. With fragrance, 10cm-across white flowers bloom before the leaves develop. Three of the perianth segments are small and sepal-like, and six inside are petal-like. Bloom time: April-May.
