Ginter ‘Spicy White’ Could be Arriving Soon in Your Mailbox
You’ve been hearing about the fabulous Magnolia ‘Ginter Spicy White’ for a few years now. It’s a wonderful tree, created by one of our volunteers, Bill Smith, our resident magnolia hybridist. Described as a cross between Magnolia Tripetala ‘Bloomfield’ and Magnolia ‘R20-1′ (Magnolia sieboldii x M. ashei) the blooms have a lemony-mint fragrance (hence the spicy). The tree was named in honor of Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden and we are honored.
Smith has devoted the last 15+ years to creating, evaluating and distributing new and improved magnolia species for Virginia gardens — and this is the payoff: Ginter ‘Spicy White’ is now available for purchase to the public at Rare Find Nursery. We’ll be sure to let you know when it’s blooming next year!
