The Q&A Archives: shrubs and trees in Calabash

Question: I just bought a sweetbox shrub at Home Depot. When will it bloom? Also, when should a Brown Beauty Magnolia bloom?
We are new to the southern tip of coastal NC

Answer: Your sweetbox (Sarcococca confusa) will bloom Jan-March but sometimes flowers as early as December. Your Brown Beauty Magnolia will bloom most heavily in spring (May-June) but will also bloom sporadically during the summer months.

Best wishes with your landscape!
