    I've been obsessed with Ashe Magnolia since I learned about them. I rarely see them for sale, so was excited when I found them here. I planted 6 little trees out in my woodland area. The trees showed up well packed and in good shape. I will come back to Mail Order Natives. Thanks for being out there! Are you also a woman owned business?

    Beautiful plants. Arrived in great shape, moist and well protected. Great root system transplanted well. Two days later you would never know they didn't grow there naturally.

    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.
