Abundant, large, sweetly fragrant flowers. Magnolia 'Pink Parchment' is among the earliest of the Magnolia to bloom, in February in Athens, Georgia, in March when growing in its more northern range. Purple-pink buds open to white blooms. Tepals have narrow center stripes of pink that flare out and shade into deep purple-pink at the outside base of the blooms. Blooms are approximately 4" across, which is about 50% larger than the species’ average. Extremely sweet scent.

This selection was remarkably heat and drought tolerant during its evaluation period in Athens, doing well during several much dryer than typical years without supplemental water. Conical-pyramidal growth habit, forms a medium sized tree. Blooms well as a young plant.
