    Awesome plant, as always, I planted an M. asheii from Mail Order Natives at my parents house years ago and its now quite large. Super healthy and just leafed out for the season, looking forward to the beautiful flowers. Ordered another one to have at my house and its doing well in an understory situation.

    I have been purchasing plants from mail order natives for several years. They always arrive on time, well packed and healthy. Plants have grown well. This Ashe Magnolia arrived promptly and looks very healthy. I will keep on buying plants from Emily

    Arrived well-packed and in great shape. Planted same day, and it's looking good days later! I couldn't be more pleased.

    I bought this to have a banana leaf like shrubby tree with magnolia flowers (as I love the scent). Honestly, I haven't planted it in the best conditions for this plant (but it's in the most attractive area in my garden for it though) so I delayed on writing my review. I'm in Zone 6b and have it planted in heavy clay/loam, 11-hour full sun on the cusp of a sharp slope. At first the leaves fried (which I expected 'cause this plant usually prefers part shade), but I've diligently watered (after testing soil with a moisture meter) and staked a temporary shade cloth around it. It took a bit to adjust to my transplant shock, but now the plant is putting on good growth and is peeking above the shade cloth but not suffering for it. I recommend giving it a try if you're on the fence; I've read reviews from others growing this in tougher situations and Ashe magnolia is a harder plant than most expect.

    from other mail order place, for the price, I was expecting a bare root stick. The plant I'd received exceeded my expectation. Received a healthy tree about 15" with established root system. Well packaged and arrive with no damage. Thanks!
