Magnolia sieboldii subsp. japonica
Oyama Magnolia or Oyama renge (scientific name: Magnolia sieboldii subsp. japonica) is a species endemic to Japan, a deciduous broad-leaved shrub to small tree in the genus Magnoliaceae. It grows naturally in the mountainous foliage forest areas of Honshu-Shikoku and Kyushu. In particular, the native habitat of the Omine Mountains in Nara Prefecture is designated as a natural monument of historic interest and scenic beauty. The height of the tree is 100 to 500 cm. The leaves open later than those of the magnolia, and the white lotus-like flowers, which are smaller than those of the magnolia, bloom downward or sideways. The flowers have six petals, but the outer three sepals look like petals. The flowers are fragrant, but they are short-lived, lasting only 4 to 5 days. The pistils and stamens are clustered in the center of the flower, and the stamens are yellow (Oyamarenge). The species name 'sieboldii' is a reference to Siebold, a Dutch botanist who collected plants in Japan.
