Magnolia sieboldii ssp. japonica / Ooyamarenge オオヤマレンゲ

With ash-gray barks,  Magnolia sieboldii ssp. japonica, a deciduous shrub or small tree growing to approximately 5m in height, inhabits deciduous broad-leaved forests in hilly districts. Leaves are of alternate phyllotaxis; blades measuring 6-20cm in length and 5-12cm in width are obovate to broadly obovate, with quick tips pointed, and the margins are entire. The leaves bottom sides tinge white, and the hairless petioles measure 2-4cm in length. As leaf development ends, branch tops set 5-10cm across white flowers facing sideways or downward; outer tepals, 3 in number, are sepal-like, and inner tepals, 6-9, are petal-like, filaments light red, and anthers light yellow-green. Bloom time: May-July.
