This little flower may not look like much, but believe me. IT'S HUGE ! !
It's on my Michelia Yunnanensis bush and it's been a long time coming. The Michelia is from Tibet and is supposed to do well in cooler climates, but maybe it just hasn't liked Melbourne all that much
I brought this bush back to Melbourne with me when I was relocated from Brisbane....that's ten years ago....I had it in a large pot for a little while, then we planted it in the garden, but it's always struggled. This is the first time the bush has budded up and then bloomed to this degree.
