Michelia figo - Port Wine Magnolia -Dense, slow-growing, evergreen shrub up to 4.5m in height, that ideally should be grown near an entrance, window, or a doorway to get the full impact of its perfume. Small, glossy, bright green leaves and during spring and summer tiny beige-purple and red flowers emit a heady, fruity scent rather like bananas vintage port. Sunny position but does well in semi shade too. Needs a well drained, fertile soil. Pruning is rarely necessary.
