Well, I got it, even if no one else did Vulcan.
Is it blooming at the moment, Tambo ?
Heres a simple test for magnolia grandiflora aka bullbay - Take a petal and place it on the pavement, step on it and you should see a clear imprint of the sole of your shoe.
It should also have a lemony scent and the flowers can be 10"s across.
