“Little Gem” is a popular variety of Magnolia due to its impressive flowering, form, and glossy foliage. Large and fragrant, white flowers are produced through spring and summer amidst the lush, dark green foliage. This evergreen grows compactly with a pyramidal shape to about 6 m tall and 4 m wide and can be trimmed as necessary. It performs best when planted in full sun on a well-drained, sheltered site, though it is tolerant of dry periods, moderate frost, and cool climates. “Little Gem” is a prized Magnolia variety that is commonly added to a mixed planting, grown as a specimen, or used a stunning backdrop for smaller plants. It is a very rewarding tree that is aesthetically pleasing year round.
