A local nursery was able to find me 'Moonglow' a particular cultivar of Sweet Bay Magnolia (Magnolia virginiana). I planted it in my front yard for a touch of something evergeen.
Last year my Forest Pansy redbud flowered, leafed out and died all within a few weeks. My neighbor's well established one died too. Neither of us could think of an explanation so I was reluctant to plant another one. Instead I got a Black Tupelo (Nyssa Sylvatica) to plant in that spot in Hagen's Woods. I had wanted another shade tree anyway and this is supposed to have very good fall color.
