As a companion to Matt Ritter’s article about the fragrant trees known as champaca (Magnolia champaca and it’s white-flowered hybrid, M. x alba), which were featured in the April 2012 issue of Pacific Horticulture, we offer the following short list of nurseries that occasionally offer these trees. Be sure to contact any nursery before visiting to confirm that there will be any available.

Note that some nurseries may still list Magnolia champaca as Michelia champaca, and Magnolia 5 alba as Michelia 5 alba.
