Sweetbay Magnolia (Magnolia virginiana)
This wonderful plant has the most glorious white blooms that can reach up to 3 inches wide. The blooms appear in late spring to late summer and are pleasant to smell and are a sight to see. These small trees can grow up to 20 feet tall and they deserve their own special place to be admired. Sweetbay Magnolias do well in sun or partial shade with a moist environment and make a lovely addition to any landscape.
