Magnolia virginiana

Sweetbay Magnolia - Tall shrub or small tree producing abundant crisp white flowers with heady lemony spice scent. Prefers moist site protected from wind but is cold hardy and will resprout strongly from the base if any shoots suffer winter injury. Large glossy tropical-looking leaves turn russet brown in fall, but in warmer microclimates some leaves may remain evergreen. A great plant for downtown Ithaca; marginal in exposed sites at higher elevations farther away from the lake.
