Customer Questions & Answers

Why can't you ship to Nevada?

Asked by: Gina
Hello, Gina. The tree is grown in a pot, obviously with potting soil, and Nevada regulations require the tree to ship as a bare root plant, with no soil and washed roots.

How tall is the magnolia tree when shipped and what is the caliper of the stem?

Do you know what variety of Sweet Bay the tree is? For example is is a Sweet Bay Moonglow?
Asked by: Marie
Thank you for your question. The Sweet Bay Magnolia has a stem that is about 2 in. wide at its widest point just above the soil line. The tree is approximately 3 ft. tall right now and numerous branches. The plant's botanical name is Magnolia virginiana. It is a Sweet Bay Magnolia, not a variety such as 'Moonglow.
