The Northern Belle Sweetbay Magnolia is the most evergreen of all the summer magnolias, and this selection stays green in zone 4, where all the others lose their leaves. It grows into an impressive upright tree, reaching 20 or 25 feet and spreading 15 feet wide, making a lovely specimen. From May to July large white blossoms open on the branches, releasing a rich vanilla perfume that spread across the garden. This tree is perfect at the edges of woodlands, and around water, where it grows well even in very wet soil.

  • The most cold-hardy evergreen magnolia
  • Perfumed white flowers bloom from May to July
  • A beautiful specimen tree for all gardens
  • Grows and stays evergreen even in zone 4
  • An excellent tree for wet areas and water frontage

Full sun or partial shade both suit the Northern Belle Sweetbay Magnolia. This variety is very cold-hardy, and it keeps its leaves through winter even in zone 4. It grows in ordinary garden soils, but also in wet and even flooded conditions. Once well-established it has some drought resistance. Pests and diseases are almost never problems, and this tree needs no particular care to be a glorious addition to your garden.
