Snowy White Blooms and Dense Shade

Why Sweetbay Magnolia Trees?

The Sweetbay Magnolia Tree delivers creamy-white blooms on a beautiful, dense shade tree. And this magnolia's stunning flowers burst in late spring and early summer, giving you a blizzard of blooms.

Often grown as ornamental or showpiece trees, the Sweetbay's beauty belies the strength within. This is one of the most pest resistant Magnolia Tree you can find. It can tolerate very moist soils and can even survive standing water. So, the glossy green leaves with a silver-tinted underside, signature for the Sweetbay, grow without much effort on your part.

    Better than expected

    I had two 4-5 foot Sweetbay Magnolias shipped to Seattle and they still had their leaves on them when I opened the box. Nobody sells Sweetbay Magnolias here, so this (buying online) was really my only option. Some of the leaves were ripped, but the trees are doing well after planting and I’m very pleased with the purchase.

    Arrived today and so cute

    Fast shipping, well packaged. We dug the hole in the am and planted within 30 mins of delivery. Tree was in great shape, height as advertised (higher end of the 5-6’ estimate) with a non-compacted moist root ball. My partner is thrilled with it (tree was his choice). Has a single trunk and plenty of green leaves. Hoping for fast growth because as you can see in our photos, we did not expect a 2-story house to be built in our neighborhood of ranchers overlooking our new pool… Bought the warranty just in case.
