Sweetbay MagnoliaMagnolia virginiana
While it may not produce as many blooms as other magnolias, the sweetbay magnolia should not be counted out of your landscape plans. This tree flowers late in the spring, avoiding much of the frost that can spoil a blooming tree’s beauty. It also attracts a wide variety of songbirds with its fall fruit.
This elegantly shaped flowering tree is a great choice for a specimen or patio tree.
