M. virginiana is not the most well known native but 'Moonglow' may be a selection that changes all that. Vigorous growing and disease resistant, 'Moonglow' has big, deep green foliage that covers this wide, rounded plant, providing a superb backdrop to massive, creamy-white, fragrant flowers that emerge continually from June through the rest of the summer. This tree makes a large but beautiful specimen and also provides tons of shelter for nesting native birds along with an invaluable food source from the red berries contained in the big seed pods this plant produces. 'Moonglow' tolerates moist soils and will grow well in full sun or partial shade.
