Magnolia Figo

Spring is finally arriving to Yakushima Senvus Village and some beautiful flowers are starting to bloom. 

This lovely white-cream petal flower belongs to the Magnolia figo, an evergreen plant native to China. Because of its intense banana-like fragrance, it is also known as banana shrub. 

It was actually its fragrance what made us discover that the flower had bloom ^^
