Sweet Bay Magnolia
|A handsome semi-evergreen tree with 2 to 3 in. creamy-white, lemon-scented flowers against a background of glossy green leaves. Native to the eastern United States. Unlike other Magnolias, it can tolerate wet, boggy soils. A lovely shade or specimen tree.
|Once established, water deeply when dry.
|Moderate growing to 12 to 20 ft. tall and wide.
|Exceptional southeastern native that remains small and yet blooms well enough to become a carefree specimen. Perfect for smaller suburban landscapes where M. grandiflora is too large. Tall form is ideal for separating multistory homes or for shading sideyards. Integrate into woodlands or to add relief against fine textured evergreen conifers. A natural for historic sites in the South.
|Group this gree with other stellar Southern natives such as Crimson Wonder Rose Mallow, (Hibiscus 'Crimson Wonder'), Balboa Sunset Trumpet Vine, (Campsis radicans 'Monbal'), Blue Moon Kentucky Wisteria, (Wisteria macrostachya 'Blue Moon') and a non-native hallmark of the region, Seminole Crape Myrtle, (Lagerstroemia indica 'Seminole').
|Prefers moist rich organic soils. Can tolerate moist, boggy soil and clay. Appreciates a protected location in Zone 5. Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Watering can be reduced after establishment. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring.
|The fine wood of old trees is prised by craftsman for box wood and veneer.
