The Little Gem Magnolia, also known as Magnolia grandiflora 'Little Gem,' is a popular and versatile evergreen tree. Here's everything you need to know about it:

  1. Size and Shape: The Little Gem Magnolia is a compact variety that typically reaches a height of 20 to 30 feet and a spread of 10 to 15 feet. It has a dense, upright, and pyramidal shape, making it suitable for smaller spaces or as a focal point in the landscape.

  2. Foliage: This magnolia variety features glossy, dark green leaves with a leathery texture. The leaves are smaller than those of the traditional Southern Magnolia, typically measuring around 5 to 7 inches long. The foliage provides year-round interest and remains on the tree throughout the year.

  3. Flowers: The Little Gem Magnolia produces beautiful, fragrant, creamy white flowers that can reach up to 6 inches in diameter. The flowers bloom from late spring to early summer and may continue sporadically throughout the year. They add a touch of elegance and fragrance to the landscape.
