Got my Michelia alba!
30 inches tall. Top part looks awesome. The tiny amount of what's left of the trimmed roots not so much.
The seller on eBay said it was a grafted plant however it's clearly been air-layered (has the lower stem and sphagnum moss between the stem and the roots).
Anyone know if an air-layered M. alba blooms sooner than a grafted plant or does it matter?
Hopefully this summer I'll finally be able to sniff what everyone has been raving about! :)
