Flower: Michelia


This Michelia Champaca (or Chempaka in Malay) is a genus of flowering plants belonging to the Magnolia family (Magnoliaceae) and is native to tropical and subtropical south and southeast Asia (Indomalaya), including southern China. The genus is named after the Florentine botanist Pietro Antonio Micheli. Michelia is also used to produce an essential oil for perfume.

We have this plant for over 4 years now and this is the first time it produces flowers.
