The flowers are pale yellow to orange and fairly large growing up to 5.1 cm in diameter. They are also very fragrant and when a Michelia tree is in flower the fragrance prodced is noticeable some distance from the tree. Grafted plants are recommended as they flower much earlier and stay more compact. Eventually, however, they grow to become a large tree. Flowers can be used as a room freshener or car perfume. Just a couple of flowers in a dish will make the entire room fragrant. The evergreen tree is suitable for avenue planting. Plants require full sunlight also used for container planting.

Yellow Sonchafa

We got a Yellow Sonchafa plant but it only got flowers once. Not after that. The leaves of the plant are just above. Also the leaves feel dry.

Sonchafa not flowering

I received the plant in healthy condition. I repotted it to a medium size pot. But it's almost 10 days since I recieved the plant, it's not flowering. There are healthy green buds that I see from day1 which are in the same state. Does it take time to bloom?

Healthy Plant

Plant is very healthy and grafted but price is little bit high as compare to other and local nursery.
