This elegantly shaped flowering tree is a great choice for a specimen or patio tree. Sweetbay magnolia trees feature creamy white spring and summer flowers with a sweet, lemony fragrance and leaves that flutter in the slightest breeze to flash their silvery undersides. The fruiting cones consist of a group of pinkish-colored fruit that burst open to release the seeds when ripe.

I had not ordered from New Blooms before, but took a chance because I was ordering a "sweet bay magnolia" and they had them in stock.
It came quickly in perfect condition, even in freezing weather. I followed their instrucsions about planting and it is thriving!!! I am very pleased with their service and quality of plants!!
I have planted my Sweet Bay Magnolia and hoping it grows and blooms! I was concerned when it arrived as my area was preparing for a unusual Fall freeze, but I reached out and New Blooms quickly replied to tell me how to protect my tree.
I ordered from "new blooms nursery" a sweet bay magnolia tree, It was packed very careful in beautiful package.The plant come more beautiful what I expected. No damage at all,and this tree started opening in just 2-days after the shipping.
Thank you so much.. .
