    Strange tree in Camarillo, California that smells like cloves

    Can you please identify this tree for me? When I break open the "fruit or flower" it smells like cloves. Looks like apple seeds inside. Here is a picture:

    I know it's a Magnolia, but not sure on the exact type. Possibly a Magnolia soulangeana (Saucer Magnolia)

    Thank you GR very much! You have solved a mystery for me. It's been driving me crazy trying to figure this out. Actually I looked at the tree today and it's almost bare of leaves but at the very top is the most beautiful pink flower. Only one but it's beautiful. Thank you soooo much again!

    Ironically helping YOU out helped ME identify it as well There is a house somewhere in my hometown that has one of these planted in their yard. I have only seen it once in 3 years and since then have been unable to find the house again to take a photo. I remembered what the fruit looked like, but not the leaves, but thanks to your photo I was able to FINALLY ID it!

    Welcome to Arbor Day Forums, and I hope you enjoy your stay.
