(Magnolia virginiana)

Mature Size:  40-45' x 15-20'

USDA Hardiness Zone:   6-10  (View Hardiness Zone Map)

Outstanding Characteristics: Deciduous Bay Magnolia with an upright growth habit, long lime green foliage (4-6") that is silver on the back (nice contrast in a breeze), creamy summer flower, red fall fruit. 

Notes:  These deciduous Bay Magnolias were planted as Australis, but turned out to not be evergreen. Still hold some foliage, but only about 25% in January, 2019.  Same form.  More economical alternative to Australis.
