MAGNOLIA SOUTHERN LITTLE GEM
‘Little Gem’ is a much smaller and slower growing cultivar that typically grows as a compact upright multi-stemmed shrub or small tree to 20’ tall over the first 20 years. It features glossy green leaves that are bronze-brown underneath. Leaves typically drop to the ground in spring as new foliage emerges. Fragrant white flowers bloom in summer. ‘Little Gem’ is winter hardy to USDA Zone 7. This small tree may become somewhat deciduous in hard winters. It is best grown in moist, organically rich, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. It is generally intolerant of soil extremes (dry or wet).
