GROWING AT THE GROVE
Week of May 20thMagnificent Magnolias, part 2
Magnolia grandiflora, or southern magnolia, is an evergreen species that is native to the southeastern United States.  However, it is winter hardy into Zone 6 winters, like we typically have in southern Ohio.  It shows off with large white, fragrant flowers in late spring.
A stately tree when full grown, make sure to allow room for a tree that can potentially grow to 50+ feet tall and 30 feet wide.  Look for the Spring Grove cultivar on section 16, opposite sections 15 and 73.
Magnolia virginiana, or sweetbay magnolia, is also native to the southeastern states, although it ranges up towards New York along the Atlantic coast.  Smaller, fragrant white flowers will adorn the tree in late spring.  There are deciduous and evergreen selections available in the trade.  While it can grow to large sizes in native environments, it will typically be seen as a smaller flowering plant in landscapes.  Check out a wonderful grouping on section 19A opposite 19, on the yellow line.- Until next time, Brian (Brian Heinz, Horticulture Manager)Image attachmentImage attachment

HORTICULTURE HIGHLIGHTS courtesy of our Director of Horticulture, Dave Gressley
** Bonus **The American Yellowwood (Cladrastis kentukea) is in flower which is nothing unusual.  However, they flower with the same synchronicity you hear from an orchestral movement.
They flower every other year; during the off year, there will not be a single aberrant flower on any one of the dozen or so specimens planted on the grounds that originated from different sources and different times going back to the age of our Ohio Champion Tree on Section 69 behind White Pine Chapel. Other prominent specimens can be seen in Section 19A and 23. Many other specimens are planted on the grounds all draped in fragrant white panicle flowers.Until next time - Dave
