Gardeners' Notes:

Positive giegertree On Oct 5, 2014, giegertree from Savannah, GA wrote:

As previously alluded, all michelias are in the genus Magnolia now...and Magnolia laevifolia is the earliest botanical name assigned to this species (that's why yunnanensis, dianica and amabilis are all just old synonyms now) and therefore the accepted name for this species.

This plant is hardy well into zone 8a -- and that should be reflected in the main posting for this plant on Dave's Garden.
