Notes:

I’ve recently moved into a new house. Been able to identify most existing plants except for this one. It will occasionally produce flowers (light pink as seen, and light purple as well), but most of the time consists of the leaves shown without flowers at all. Flowers seem to bloom after heavy rain. Would like to identify so that I can start properly caring for it. Recently it shed most of its leaves, but new ones have grown in quickly.

    It could be a hybrid of Saucer Magnolia, Magnolia soulangeana. If so, it should have a big flowering before the leaves come out in early spring. I have one that does not have any flowers later into the summer, but I suppose it could have some could sporadically flower later in the year.
