Evergreen Of The Month

Her official name is Magnoliaceae Michelia Figo, I refer to her as my little Banana Magnolia!!! She has become one of my favorite evergreens in our courtyard (partly because she hides my huge hunk a metal called the a/c unit).

The flowers have this sweet ripe banana, juicy fruit gum, apple like fragrance that is delightful. I swear depending on the time of the day it smells different.

It's an old southern plant and everyone I talk to says "yea my grandmother had one of those in her yard."

It's early spring and the plant is full of buds and blooming!!

I love this plant.

I hope she likes her new home in our courtyard.

Please don't die on me baby!!!!
