That looks like a variety of Magnolia. Not sure which one. Most likely it is Magnolia grandiflora or Magnolia virginiana. There are several others listed in Florida but are confined the the panhandle and are listed as rare.

I agree with Horntoad. It does have the look of Magnolia. Do you have a pic. of the whole plant? A pic. of a bloom could be most helpful also to narrow it down.

I agree magnolia. Mine get really pretty, large white blooms that have a lemony scent.
Each cloud has a silver lineing if only you look for it.

I agree with everyone else, definitely a Magnolia, probably the Southern Magnolia, M. grandiflora: Southern Magnolia (Magnolia grandiflora)

I have one in my yard, a smaller version M. grandiflora 'Little Gem': Southern Magnolia (Magnolia grandiflora 'Little Gem')
