Magnolia virginiana Linnaeus 

Sweetbay is found in swampy woods or deep swamps where it is 
usually a shrub, although sometimes attaining the size of a tree. The 
leathery leaves are silvery beneath, and their upper surface is a rich 
dark green. The solitary flowers are borne at the tips of the branches, 
where the creamy petals contrast pleasingly with the deeply colored 
foliage. Their delicious and pervasive odor is their greatest attraction. 
Long after the flowers have passed they are succeeded by a cone- 
shaped fruit in which, when fully ripe, the separate parts split open, 
and the seeds with their bright red fleshy covering dangle by slender 
threads. When the thread finally breaks, the seeds are blown by the 
wind to substantial distances. While beavers were abundant they 
felled the trunks of these trees for building their dams, and they were 
so fond of the bark that it was employed frequently to bait beaver 
traps. Sweetbay is often called beaver tree. 

This striking member of the Magnolia Family is found around 
the Gulf of Mexico from Florida to Texas and Arkansas, and north- 
ward along the Atlantic coastal plain to Pennsylvania and Massachu- 
setts. It always grows in the most acid of soils, and thrives in culti- 
vation only if planted in such soils. 

It grows plentifully in the neighborhood of Washington, District 
of Columbia, where this specimen was found.

Your Print Options:

Poster Print

While this is our lowest priced print, it's still an excellent paper. Inkpress Matte 60 is a acid and lignin free paper. Bright white, and 10 mil. Available in three sizes, all come with a 1" white border around the image for easier matting.

 

Rag Print

Inkpress Cool Rag 200 is a 100% cotton rag paper. This is an acid-free, 200gsm, 15 mil, with a smooth and bright matte finish. Excellent print quality at an excellent price. Available in three sizes, all come with a 1" white border around the image for easier matting. This rag paper is better at dark, rich colors than the poster print.


Hahnemuehle Torchon Print

When you need something extra-special, we recommend Hahnemuehle's Torchon. This is a 100% alpha cellulose, 285gsm, textured watercolor paper that is acid-free. This offers superb image quality and is our favorite Hahnemuehle paper. Available in three sizes, all come with a 1" white border around the image for easier matting.

Canvas Print

Our maps are also available as cotton-poly blend canvas prints, ready to be gallery stretched. For the best presentation the edges on our canvasses are mirrored or have the paper color extended around the sides. Canvas prints receive a UV and surface protective coating. Additional canvas is left around the image to facilitate gallery stretching at your local frame shop. Available in two sizes.


Wall Tapestry Print

Especially well suited for long horizontal maps, the image is printed to the edge of the paper. Aluminum tension bars are placed on the top and bottom of the print for easy hanging with a clean, modern design. Bars are easily removable. This format comes in an 18", 24", and 36" wide version.


Fabric Wall Cling

Great for kids rooms or for versatile displays - these Terylene fabric clings are easily repositionable without causing wear or staining to the paint underneath even after long periods of time. Wall Cling images are printed to the edge and are available in three sizes.
