Southern Magnolia Gift Trees


Harvested from our oldest magnolia tree on the grounds at the Nelson-Galt House and propagated to maturity by respected Florida farmers at The Magnolia Company, each clipping has grown into a small magnolia tree - the perfect gift.

fun facts

The gift trees are grown from a magnificent Southern Magnolia (Magnolia grandiflora) located in the rear garden of the Nelson-Galt House.  The tree reaches approximately 65 feet tall and is one of the oldest trees in Colonial Williamsburg.  It predates the house's 1952 restoration and is believed to date back to around 1820.
