Magnolia Kobus is a medium sized tree with a crown that is upright pyramidal in habit. As the branches start to droop with age the crown eventually becomes spreading ovoid. The smooth and bare branches have woolly-haired leaf buds. The leaf, which is short acuminate and obovate, turns yellow in autumn. Before the leaf appears this tree produces white, completely open flowers. These are approximately 10 cm across. A late night frost may damage the flowers. At a young age M. kobus does not flower profusely, but when mature it is an abundantly flowering tree.
