Sweetbay Magnolia

Magnolia virginiana

Sweetbay Magnolia is Native to North America. We use this in naturalistic plantings whenever we can. It is semi-evergreen which means in milder climates it will hold its leaves through the winter. The white flowers have a lemony-scent which fills the air in spring through to early summer. Perfect near patios or decks where you can fully enjoy the heavenly fragrance.

Sweetbay Magnolia, otherwise known as Magnolia Virginiana, is a handsome semi-evergreen native tree with cup-shaped, fragrant flowers against a background of glossy green leaves. The southern belle of trees and a true sophisticated beauty, the Sweet Bay is loved for its unique foliage and ability to withstand a variety of conditions.

The Virginianas typically grow in full sun to part shade and a moderately moist rich soil. However, due to its hardy nature, this type of Magnolia Tree will gladly tolerate acidic, medium to wet soils, along with full to part shade. This feature makes the Sweetbay a perfect addition to high moisture areas near bogs, creeks and ponds.

Native to North America, this multi stemmed shrub produces gorgeous creamy-white flowers that produce a sweet lemon scent. The oblong green foliage pairs gorgeously with the tree's large springtime blooms. Additionally, the Sweet Bay Magnolia produces red seeded fruits that mature in the fall and bring a new level of interest and beauty to the plant.

This tree is ideal for use as a specimen tree or focal point, as well as a great addition in foundation plantings, parks and campuses. Wherever you decide to plant a Sweetbay Magnolia, there is no doubt you will feel surrounded by the beauty and elegance that it emits.
