We feel fortunate to have a few specimens of this rare and elegant plant for you. Mardi Gras Magnolia is a definitely a tree that knows how to party. Its green and yellow variegated leaves are two attractive shades of green that will add depth and a strong focal point to any garden. 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 received a well grafted tree that was started bud out...very well packaged.
They provided me with good instructions on planting in my heavy clay “soil” as well!!!
Excellent communication and the best packing for shipment of my trees I have ever seen. Trees are in the ground and leafing out already with the warm weather we are having
