Hakuren bonsai

The magnolia originates from China and was originally brought to Japan for medicinal purposes.

It is also known as “purple magnolia” because of the purple color of its petals.

It is characterized by its stiff petals and leaves that emerge during flowering.

These are hidden by the leaves by the time the flowers are over.

The tree is resistant to heat and cold and easy to grow.
