Anise Magnolia has leaves narrower than those of other magnolias. The fragrant white flowers are borne in early spring and so may be killed by frost. The fruit are pink with scarlet seeds as is typical of other magnolias. The stems give off a lemon scent when bruised. The pyramidal habit becomes irregular with age.
