Green Mile™ Sweetbay Magnolia

This is a unique magnolia in that it's got a strict upright habit, growing skinny and tall. It's especially distinctive and an ideal specimen. The fragrance is also a huge draw, both the blooms and the crushed leaves have this refreshing lemon scent. It'll be unmissable experience through sunny summer afternoons. The foliage will hang on through most seasons, and in certain climates it'll last year-round. In late fall, bright red fruit will appear, drawing the attention of smaller birds. Even the seedpods are showy. Green Mile is handy in a marshy site, it has good wet soil tolerance. Magnolia virginiana 'MVHH'
