From Question and Answer Forums: What are others saying about this plant?
I just lost a large hickory tree in my front yard and would like to replace it with something that will eventually grow large as well. Im on a busy street, and I would like to screen some of the noise. This may be a good option. Do you know where I can get this Any other suggestions for good screening plants for busy streets
I want to plant this tree but my landscaper tells me he cannot find it in the Cincinnati area to buy. Where can I get this tree
Try Natorps Nursery. It is not easy to find but you will find them available. Also keep in mind the cultivar Butterflies which is a cucumber type magnolia.
