This paper investigates the microstructure and texture evolution of as-rolled Mg-5Li-3Al-2Zn-1.2Y-0.8Nd. During rolling (both warm rolling and hot rolling), many twins appear in the alloy, some of which are cross-twins. Dynamic recrystallization occurs, resulting in grain refinement. With the increase of rolling reduction percentage, basal texture appears, and then finally non-basal texture appears. The non-basal texture during warm rolling begins to appear under a smaller rolling reduction percentage than that during hot rolling. When the rolling reduction is 28 %, the angles between the majority of c-axes and rolling direction are mainly about 25°. When the rolling reduction percentage is 52 %, the textures are strengthened.
