                      About

                      The Southern Magnolia tree is a truly magnificent tree with a name that is somewhat misleading. Although it’s iconic in the south, and the state tree of Mississippi, its zone 6 planting range means it can grow in many northern areas, even as far north as parts of Maine, Michigan and Washington. As an ornamental, it is beloved for its year-round, broad leafed foliage and delightful, large, late-spring creamy-white flowers. Its green leaves brighten the landscape throughout the year and its large white flowers are striking, not only for their beauty, but for their rich fragrance. 

                      Wildlife

                      The Southern Magnolia fruits are eaten by squirrels, rabbits, and birds, including wild turkey.

                      History

                      Magnolias are entwined with the history of the South. Perhaps the one reaching back the farthest into time is a Southern Magnolia that still grows in what today is Washington State Park in Washington, Arkansas. According to "Famous and Historic Trees," by Charles E. Randall and Henry Clepper, this tree was planted near an important road junction in 1839 by Gen. Grandison D. Royston. It was near a blacksmith shop where Jim Bowie fashioned his famous knife. Some call it the Jones Magnolia because two unrelated boys were born to Jones families the same year the tree was planted. Both became Colonels in the Confederate army and one, Daniel W. Jones, eventually became Governor of Arkansas. The other, James K. Jones, became a U.S. senator. Both laid claim to being the namesake of the tree and James finally resolved the good-natured debate by purchasing the land the tree stood on and making his home there for over 30 years. Another historic specimen grows on the White House grounds. It was transplanted by President Andrew Jackson from his home in Nashville, Tennessee in memory of his beloved wife, Rachel.

                                          Unlike Evergreens, which we ship year-round, Seasonal trees are shipped in early to mid-Spring and again in the Fall and are sent according to your local climate and this year's weather. This is done to be sure your tree is planted at the optimal time. Also, to be sure that your seedling arrives in a strong and healthy condition, we need to ship Seasonals when they are dormant in the Spring and Fall. Send us an email to info@thelivingurn.com or call us at (800) 495-7022 with questions or for more information regarding the delivery date of your tree.
