This is a close-up of one of the unopened flowers of a Saucer Magnolia (Magnolia x soulangeana). This hybrid was first developed in France in the 1820's by plantsman Étienne Soulange-Bodin. It's cultivation has since spread throughout other parts of Europe, and also into North America, where this one was photographed, in Maryland.
