Banana Shrub


Michelia figo            

Photographed at Brunswick Community College Supply, NC on March 13, 2016.  Called Banana Shrub due to its fruity floral aroma which simulates ripening bananas. When viewing the flower, it resembles a Magnolia bloom more than a banana one, placing it in the Magnoliaceae family with southern, saucer, sweetbay and star.  Excellent evergreen shrub for warm shade in the Coastal Plain region of the South. Great as a shrub or screen, but wonderful limbed-up to small tree stature.
