Exciting news for the southern gardener—this is a whole new flowering evergreen hedge. The blossoms are highly unique. Of course, magnolias are known for their fragrance, but these pretty petals are especially aromatic with a highly distinctive banana scent that'll permeate the warm afternoon landscape and create a tropical feel. They also rebloom, so you enjoy your slice of paradise both in spring and in late summer to early fall. The glossy leaves are dense and evergreen. Since it grows quickly and reaches a mature height of 10–15' tall, this makes a great year–round privacy screen. Reacts well to pruning. Magnolia x figo 'Stellar Ruby'
