Magnolia grandiflora 'Little Gem'
Little Gem Magnolia
A lovely compact tree that develops an oval-shaped crown of large, wavy-edged leaves that are glossy dark green on the upper side and soft, velvety brown on the underside. The beautiful white, fragrant, saucer-shaped flowers are displayed from Summer through to Autumn but may also appear throughout the year. Little Gem grows in full sun to part shade preferring an enriched, well drained soil. Keep soil moist in Summer but do not over water. Mulch well to cope with dry Summer periods. The tree is frost hardy but likes protection from strong winds. A great feature tree or large screen in small to large gardens, in streetscapes or parks. Also a good choice for large tubs and responds well to pruning to maintain a dense habit. Feed with an ‘All Purpose Fertiliser ‘ in September and again in January.
