My Neighbor's Tree

My neighbor has a tree that overhangs our yard. I'm not sure of the proper name for this tree but it is related to magnolia. The leaves are close to two feet long and the flowers are about 15 -20 inches across. I've tried to pick them for indoor decoration but they turn brown very quickly. The tree is deciduous so in the fall the leaves have to be picked up off the ground. They are nearly too big to rake. Rather spectacular.
