The Magnolia Tree is the beacon of spring, whether planted by themselves or in groves! They’re known and loved for their fragrant blooms, which are usually yellow, white, or pink and can grow as large as ten inches across! Galaxy Magnolia, with its hot pink blooms, is definitely one of our favorites!
FEATURED MAGNOLIA TREES:
SWEETBAY MAGNOLIA – SINGLE STEM
Sweetbay Magnolia will bring a feeling of lightness to your landscape with its airy habit and silver-backed leaves dancing in the wind, making a pleasing contrast to dark evergreens, stone, brick, and wood. This delicate Magnolia is heavy on fragrance, and every year you’ll look forward to late spring and early summer, when this small specimen tree opens its creamy-white flowers. They pour out a lovely lemony scent that you’ll come to associate with grilling out, backyard picnicking, sitting by the pool, and all the outdoor fun that takes place during that wonderful time of year. And, being a moderately fast-growing tree, Sweetbay doesn’t take long to get the show underway!
BUTTERFLIES MAGNOLIA – SINGLE STEM
Magnolia x acuminata ‘Butterflies’ PP 7,456
Everybody loves a Magnolia tree, and you probably see plenty of these pink- and white-flowering trees around your neighborhood each spring, but have you ever seen Magnolia ‘Butterflies,’ with its scrumptious banana-custard-yellow blooms? The flowers line the bare branches like yellow tulips and have a gentle fragrance. We are pleased to be able to offer this uncommon tree in two forms: Our dense and bushy multi-stem Butterflies Magnolias will anchor your spring garden and do double-duty as some of the prettiest privacy trees you’ll ever see. Our single-stem Butterflies make splendid specimens for your front yard landscaping and will have the neighbors asking, “What is that gorgeous tree?!”
DR. MERRILL MAGNOLIA – SINGLE STEM
Magnolia x loebneri ‘Dr. Merrill’
Dr. Merrill Magnolia’s joyful display of sweet-smelling, bright white flowers comes as a relief, because it can only mean one thing: spring has arrived! After a long, cold winter, a Merrill Magnolia in your yard will lift your spirits and put a smile on the face of everyone who passes by. For maximum impact, plant this medium-sized accent tree in front of dark green evergreens, such as Norway Spruce or Arborvitae. Our low-branched, multi-stemmed Merrill Magnolias do double-duty as specimens and as dense, leafy privacy screens during the growing season. Our single-stem Merrills have more of a traditional tree shape, with clearance below for planting early bulbs like daffodils and hyacinths. Let the springtime begin!
GALAXY MAGNOLIA – SINGLE STEM
Magnolia x ‘Galaxy’
Galaxy Magnolia is a fun plant with traffic-stopping hot pink flowers in spring. You’ll be amazed when the fat, furry buds (which look and feel like big, soft Pussy Willow buds) burst open to release fragrant waterlily-like blossoms that can measure up to 10 inches across! Blooming along with Jane Magnolia and Butterflies Magnolia, Galaxy usually flowers late enough to escape damaging frosts. This vigorous and disease-resistant Magnolia tree was hybridized by the National Arboretum in Washington, D.C., so it’s almost unpatriotic not to grow one! Plant this stunner by your front walkway, porch, patio, living room window, or any place you’d like to see some big-time drama in spring.
