Plants for Wet Soils


Even bumblebees can't resist the blooms of sweetbay magnolia.While native to freshwater swamps along the Atlantic seaboard, sweetbay magnolia grows very well in protected locations throughout Central New York and thrives in constantly damp soils. While their creamy white blooms are not extraordinarily showy and appear only sporadically from late June through late July, their citrus-like fragrance is delightful!
