I too thought it looked like a Magnolia but have never heard of them being yellow.

There is a place called Yellow Magnolia Cafe which is located in the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens. Maybe New York knows all about the magnolias with the yellow flowers. Hurray!

(Okay, now I want to own a yellow magnolia!)

Have you uploaded any of the images to the NGA database?

The more I see the yellow magnolia, the more I'd like to grow at least one. Thumbs up

A new cultivar called "Lois" has non-fading yellow flowers.
