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.
