For those looking for an interesting native with all season color Magnolia x virginiana 'Moonglow' is worth examining. The deep-green shinny leaves are evergreen as far north as zone 5 and allow Moonglow to provide year round color. Gardeners and designers can use it similar to a holly or pine, providing season long color and structure for the landscape. However, unlike holly or pine, Moonglow will give you prolific large white tulip like white blooms. On the backdrop of dark green leaves these blooms will breath-life into your spring garden while accentuating your the more colorful species in the yard. Use it in the way you might a white flowering dogwood to pop even more color into the pinks, purples or yellows of spring.
At 30 ft. tall and 15- 20 ft. wide, Moonglow isn't overly large, but it will need space to thrive. We like them near patios to provide a level of shade, privacy and natural beauty. Along home foundations they can add outstanding year long vertical accents, while magnolia roots remain supple enough they won't damage the home.
