Lily magnolia flower – The Secret Garden of 1 Utama.
When we went back to The Secret Garden the following weekend, the lily magnolia bud had bloomed. Unfortunately, a few petals had already fallen off. Looking at the fresh condition of one of the petals on the ground, I estimated that we were late by one day only or less. Still, I am fascinated by this species of magnolia. Its large firm petals, white on the inside and purplish pink on the outside, makes a bold statement without being showy. This is one of the plants I would love to have in my garden.
