Calling All Junior Arborists

I was going through some old pics to post on my shiny new Facebook Fan Page, and I came across this one. It’s from the tree at Gypsy‘s house, located roughly halfway between Awesome Porch and Awesome Garage, and I love it. Its flowers look and feel like magnolia flowers (apart from being pink), but the leaves are soft and not waxy at all.

What is this tree? Does anyone know?

    Twitter folks and I Sherlock Holmesed it: we believe it’s a Saucer Magnolia ( which is a hybrid tree. (Thanks, guys!)

    Very cool! I’ve got one in my yard and have been been wondering what the devil it was. Thanks!

    Yes, smartass, but there are 700 different KINDS of magnolias…

    soulangeana, I think – yep, magnolia. The ones we’ve got where I come from are much more scraggly and tend to smell like they’re fermenting. This one’s much prettier…
