Evergreen sweetbay magnolia (Magnolia virginiana var australis) is a hardy medium-size native tree.
This flowering evergreen tree produces creamy white, fragrant flowers in midspring and sporadically throughout the summer.
Bright red seeds mature in autumn on cone-like pods.
Large dark green leaves have a silver "lining" on the back side, making the leaves appear to "dance" in the breeze.
This flowering tree has an upright growth habit. It can be grown as single- or multi-trunk tree.
This Louisiana Super Plant is a wonderful accent tree. Use in foundation plantings, near patios or at the edge of woodland areas.
