Magnolia virginiana ‘Moonglow’ – Sweetbay Magnolia


A highly underused small tree. The sweet, lemon fragrance of the creamy white, 3-5″ flowers is among the best of the Magnolias. The flowers are followed by interesting red fruits. The leaves have silvery undersides that flash in the wind and are semievergreen, remaining on the tree in mild winters, but dropping in severe ones. Grows in wetlands in the wild but does well in average garden soil. This variety is very cold-hardy, having survived -28°F (cold Zone 4).
