    I'm good with native plants, not so much with ornamental/tame plants.
    Is this a type of Magnolia tree? Thanx.

    It looks like a cultivar of magnolia japonica. Possibly have some large-ish pink blooms ready to pop open. Not sure of color, there are a few different shades.
    None of the magnolias down here set buds at this time of year.
    It could also be a White Star Magnolia, blooms have small petals that sort of look like a star burst. That is also a japonica.

    Looks very similar to my magnolia bush. That is HUGE though! I hope my bush doesn't get that big. But then again I'm in a different climate.

    It looks like our magnolia trees (leaves and buds), except..... its bush shaped. Interesting. Magnolia trees are very bushy though.

    This is actually the top of the tree lol. Since it grew in the shade under the Douglas Fir, it grew sideways to seek sunlight.
    The "buds" are new leaf growth for next spring. The tree is now bald except for these tiny leaves.
