An outstanding cultivar of our North American native Sweetbay Magnolia, 'Silver Mist' gets its name from its silver-backed leaves that shimmer in the wind on a breezy day. But the spectacular qualities don't stop there. This beauty produces heavenly fragrant, lemony sweet fragrant white flowers from mid spring all the way to mid fall. Silver Mist has much fuller foliage than does the species with an absolutely distinct conical form making it a fine selection for evergreen privacy screen plantings. Small cone-like fruits with showy bright red seeds are displayed in fall. The large and glossy leaves provide a lush, tropical effect in the landscape. Sweet Bay Magnolia has the ability to maintain a straight central trunk with age, which allows it to be grown full to the ground or lower branches can be removed to form a very attractive tree with a visible trunk. Will tolerate somewhat boggy soils. Get all the details below!
