Description

Paired with her big glossy green leaves and her velvety copper underside, this compact, fast-growing feature tree makes an excellent screening hedge pot plant. She can also be planted in groups: a hardy and reliable gal that makes a consistently solid performer in the landscape. Early spring is a good time to prune and shape if required and she will tolerate being cut back hard if necessary.

  • Paired with her big glossy green leaves and her velvety copper underside, this compact, fast-growing feature tree makes an excellent screening hedge pot plant. She can also be planted in groups: a hardy and reliable gal that makes a consistently solid performer in the landscape. Early spring is a good time to prune and shape if required and she will tolerate being cut back hard if necessary. 

  • Quick Facts
    • What to use me for: Great as a screening hedge or in a pot. Little Gem will provide a perfect backdrop for garden beds.
    • Where to place me: I love part shade 

    • How far to space me: Plant me 2.5 - 4m apart 

    • Watering conditions: I would love it if you could provide me with irrigation if not I can handle dry periods
    • Soil Conditions: I can handle most soil types but prefer a well-drained mix. Performs best in part shade, and tolerates polluted city atmospheres. Magnolias require organic, well-drained soils with summer irrigation for success.

    • My features: My flowers are big, beautiful and scented 

  • Size
  • I grow to: 6 high, 3m wide 

    Can be kept to: 2.0m high x 1.0m wide 

  • Growing
  • Magnolias prefer moist, fertile and well-drained soil that is slightly acidic, so when planting it helps if the position has been prepared that way. A sunny aspect is best, though they do tolerate partial shade, and some protection from strong winds will help. We advise an annual application of good quality fertiliser in spring, and mulching and watering during the drier months especially when the plant is establishing itself. Once established in the landscape ‘Little Gem’ is a very tough plant that is capable of enduring heat and low levels of frost.

  • Delivery
  • Our plants are beautifully grown, mature tube stock with well-developed roots. They are guaranteed sun-hardened, can be planted directly into the ground and are excellent performers for your garden.

    We carefully package your plants into a customised box to ensure safe transport, healthy plants and delivery fast to your door.
