Magnolia Sweetbay is often grown as an ornamental landscape tree because of its attractive foliage and flowers.  This large, multi-stemmed evergreen, with its creamy white flowers that dispense a cool, sweet, lemony fragrance.

With its open crown of spreading branches, and pale green leaves that have silvery underside will bring beauty to any landscape. 

All magnolias have unusual, exotic-looking cones, but those on a Sweetbay Magnolia are showier than most, and create less mess than other magnolia tree species.
