Native to Eastern and Southeastern United States, these hardy magnolia varieties are very different from the varieties growing in Niagara. Some varieties, however, will survive here, and remain fully evergreen in mild winters. The leaves may drop in very cold winters, but will re-grow in spring. The dark green glossy foliage is often used in Christmas arrangements and the large fragrant white blooms are stunning!
