Magnolia liliiflora
(variously known by many names, including Mulan magnolia, Purple magnolia, Red magnolia, Lily magnolia, Tulip magnolia, Jane magnolia and Woody-orchid) is a small tree native to southwest China (in Sichuan and Yunnan), but cultivated for centuries elsewhere in China and also Japan. It was first introduced to English-speaking countries from cultivated Japanese origins, and is thus also sometimes called Japanese magnolia, though it is not native to Japan. It is now also planted as an ornamental in North America and Europe, though rather less often than its popular hybrid (see below). The name Yulania liliiflora is a synonym.
It is a deciduous shrub, exceptionally a small tree, to 4m tall (smaller than most other magnolias), and blooms profusely in early spring with large pink to purple showy flowers, before the leaf buds open.

Photos taken at different times between 4th March 2011 to 27th April. Last 2 taken in the afternoon.
Location - Home - Los Altos -[next to Palo Alto - close to San Francisco ]
Habitat - Garden
Mild fragrance.

I think it is Magnolia liliiflora.
I think you are right, this is the 'Tulip" tree magnolia that we have
in the NE states, blooms are spectacular, jjust as the snow melts and spring thinks its coming,often its April 1st... so I think you are right...
But ...how does one decide ...
Since there INNUMBERABLE hybrids of Magnolia.... how does one really know which is it?
It can also be
Magnolia X soulangeana a cultivar, a cross between Magnolia liliflora and Magnolia denudata.
One such tree is present in San Francisco botanical garden.

Yes Magnolia liliiflora

Perhaps same Magnolia liliiflora
Thank you ... for the ID....
Your ID confused me because I had earlier posted Magnolia liliifera (kavathi chapha) and this looked much different.....
After a lot of googling, I realised my mistake, the ID of my tree posted in this post is M. liliiflora and not M. liliifera........What a stupid mistake.... :)
The efi page for Magnolia liliiflora (https://sites.google.com/site/efloraofindia/species/m---z/m/magnoliaceae/magnolia/magnolia-liliiflora) too contains posts relating to M. liliifera.....
Does this need to change?

Perhaps Magnolia Liliiflora ? M.soulangeana does'nt have the same fruit i believe...

Initially I thought the same but while going through the label :
Or they might have wrongly labelled!

Yes ..., the garden people have corrected it as Magnolia liliiflora Desr. Thank you ... for pointing out.
